Class of 2000 ushers in new era 

President Martinson 
welcomes freshmen 

Dear Class of 2000, 

You honored us by choosing High 
Point University. As the father of a High 
Point University graduate, I have no 
doubt that you have made a wise deci- 

I have always believed that things 
just don't happen; they happen for a rea- 
son, and there is a purpose behind ev- 
erything in our lives. I believe the dif- 
ference between an eminently success- 
ful person and one whose life is just 
mediocre is the difference between a 
person who tries to find that purpose or 
focus and the one who doesn't. 

We have been given a great privilege 
in being able to attend this university. 
We do not merit it. The privilege of at- 
tending this school is a gift. In return, 
we must give our citizenship and par- 
ticipate in those things that will help and 
not hurt our future together. God has 
been good to us. Now it is up to us to 
give our best in and out of the classroom. 

Just one further word: I believe that 
there is a great power of good within 
every single one of you and that that 
source of power comes outside and be- 
yond ourselves. If that were not true, I 
would have difficulty believing it. 

To you, the Class of 2000, we are 
proud of you. We are honored to have 
you here and we intend to walk with you 
side by side. Together, these will be the 
best years of our lives.

Campus activities: time to get involved 

The next few days will be essential in your 
quest to find the right clubs and interest groups 

By Katherine Hill 

Director of Student Life 

There's not enough time to do it all 
within four years, I'm convinced of it. 

High Point University boasts over 60 
clubs and organizations, numerous cul- 
tural events, over 100 Resident Assistant 
programs per semester and (my personal 
favorite) at least 40 Student Activity 
Board events per semester. 

Interest sessions 

So maybe you don't want to do it all. 
How do you get started with figuring out 
what you do have the time and inclina- 
tion for? Here's a simple answer: Inter- 
est sessions. 

During the first three weeks of the 
academic year, many clubs and organi- 
zations host interest sessions which arc 
open to all students. It's a great opportu- 
nity to "browse" the organization, meet 
members and find out what it's all about. 

To obtain a listing of interest ses- 
sions, turn to page 1 8 of your orienta- 
tion manual, or just stop by the Student 
Activities Office, located in the Slane 
University Center, room 100. You can 
also call the 24-hour activities hotline at 

Now you know how to get started, 
but what about finding out what's going 
on during the year? Residential students 
have received a fall activities calendar 
which lists events and sporting sched- 

Extra copies of the calendar are avail- 
able in the Slane center. Students with 
P.O. boxes receive "Highlights," a 
weekly update of events. Also, almost 
all events are posted in the Slane Cen- 
ter, and you can always drop by the Stu- 
dent Activities office. 

Get Active! 

So, you're armed with your calendar, 
phone numbers and you've run the gamut 

of interest sessions, now what? Get ac- 
tive! Grab a friend and attend a club 
meeting or slop by the Slane Center to 
check out the Student Activity Board 

Getting involved in campus activi- 
ties will increase your social contacts and 
help you get the most out of your col- 
lege experience, not to mention the lead- 
ership opportunities you'll have and the 
chance to really boost your resume. 

I recommend being involved in two 
clubs each year, one which mirrors your 
academic interests (such as Psychology 
Club or American Humanics) and one 
that is just for fun (such as Outdoor Ac- 
tivities Club or the Fellowship of Chris- 
tian Athletes). Only you will know if you 
are involved "enough" on campus. 

If you need more specific direction, 
make an appointment with the director 
of student activities to help plan your 
personal activities schedule. 

There may not be enough time to do 
it all at High Point University, but I'd bet 
you would have a great time trying!

Only you can decide 
the fate of your 
'college experience' 

By Katrina Breitenbach 


Why arc you here? 

No, I'm not asking a cosmic ques- 
tion such as, "What is your purpose in 
life? Why are we here on earth?" I'm sim- 
ply asking you, "Why are you here at 
High Point University?" 

Especially think ahout this if you are 
a freshman: Why are you in college? 
Because someone, some time in the next 
few months, will ask you, "Well, how 
do you like college life?" And your an- 
swer will all depend on why you're here. 

You see, there is a great legend called 
the "College Experience" that you are 
expected to encounter here. In fact, you 
may have heard ahout it for years - 
people telling you, "You'll love college. 
It will change your life. It will be one of 
the greatest experiences you will ever 

1 should know - I got the speeches, 
too. They came from my teachers, older 
friends and other adults in my life. So I 
arrived at college for the first time - not 
High Point University, but a state uni- 
versity - expecting to have the time of 
my life. But I was miserable from the 
very beginning - so miserable, in fact, 
that I dropped out after one semester and 
was close to swearing off college alto- 

But now I am starting my second 
year at High Point University, and I love 
college! I have found the "College Ex- 
perience" - and it is good! In fact, it's 
as great as everyone promised it would 

So what went wrong the first time? 
Simply this: No one ever told me that 
you get out of college what you put into 
it. When I went to college for the first 
time, I didn't know why I was there. I 
didn't have a purpose. I just went because 
I was expected to go. I didn't even have 
a major. 

But when I enrolled here, it was with 
a very specific purpose: to earn a degree 
in English, with a concentration in writ- 
ing, because I am a writer, and that is 
the career I want to pursue. And that 
purpose focuses everything I do here 
toward that one goal. 

For example, in every class I take - 
yes, even the general requirements that 
might seem to have no purpose, that you 
might think are just assigned to you as a 
new form of torture - I come to the 
course with this attitude: "How can this 
course help my writing? What can I get 
out of it that will benefit me and further 
my career?" 

And with that attitude, is it any won- 
der that I have enjoyed every class, even 
in subjects that I'm not very good in - 
that I used to hate (like history and RE.)? 
I get out of every class what I put into it. 
And the same will work for you - if you 
make the effort. 

So just think about it for a moment: 
Why are you here'/ The answer to that 
question could determine whether your 
"college experience" is miserable. ..or 

Rejuvenated Wray bounces back after heart attack 

The VP for internal affairs will share his story 
Sunday as one of four orientation speakers 

From staff reports 

The first speaker for Orientation 
1996 won't be shooting the bull about 
leading a life of purpose. 

Dr. Morris Wray was back at his desk 
two weeks after triple-bypass heart sur- 
gery in May . The vice president for inter- 
nal affairs was stricken by faintness while 
driving in Winston-Salem, following this 
university's graduation ceremony. He 
rested for 30 minutes, tried to return to 
the road and felt too weak to continue. 
Wray hailed a man attending a nearby 
wedding and asked him to call an ambu- 
lance. At North Carolina Baptist Hospi- 
tal, he underwent a five-hour operation. 

Wray and three other speakers will 
appear on successive nights to consider 
aspects of the theme: the nature of the 
academy, an examination of what a uni- 
versity should be. The topic arises from 
Campus Life: In Search of Community, a 
special report from The Carnegie Foun- 
dation for the Advancement of Teach- 


AH four addresses will be presented 
in mandatory sessions in the Auditorium 
at 7 p.m. Wray, the former president of 
Andrew College and the dean of the 
college at Brevard, will consider "Creat- 
ing a purposeful, open community" Sun- 
day, Aug. 18. 

President Jacob C. Martinson will 
reflect on "Creating a just, disciplined 
community" Monday, Aug. 19. Under 
his leadership, the university has seen 
dramatic growth in student enrollment 
and spent more than $25 million on reno- 
vation and construction. U.S. News and 
World Report recently chose this institu- 
tion as one of the 20most efficient liberal 
arts colleges in America. 

Ms. Marilyn Wolf, director of coun- 
seling, will discuss "Creating a caring 
community" Tuesday, Aug. 20. A cru- 
cial member of this community, Wolf 
has sessions with 15 to 24 students a 
week. She teaches students how to love 
and accept themselves and how to enjoy

North Carolina 
in June. Roberts, 
a human rela- 
tions major, 
travels to 
Atlantic City in 
September to 
compete in the 
Miss America 

HPU senior crowned 
Miss North Carolina 

By Kristen Long 
News Editor 

Jennifer Roberts, a rising senior, 
was crowned Miss North Carolina 
June 22. 

She competed as MissThomasville 
and was judged in three categories: 
evening wear, swimsuit and talent. For 
her talent Roberts tap-danced to "Devil 
With a Blue Dress On." 

"It wasn't easy, but I get my com- 
petitive edge from my father," said 
Roberts, a human relations major. "He 
played professional hockey." 

This was Roberts' second time at 
the Miss North Carolina Pageant. Last 
year, she competed as Miss Guilford 
County and was one of the top 10 fi- 

Roberts first came to HPU last year 
after transferring from Peace College 
where she received her associate of arts 

"After finishing at Peace College, 

I felt I was ready to come back home," 
said Roberts, who was born and raised 
in Greensboro. "High Point had the 
small atmosphere that I wanted." 

During her time as Miss North 
Carolina, Roberts will promote Win- 
ners for Life, a non-profit organiza- 
tion promoting family values, as her 
community service platform. 

"It's important to think of a family 
as a team," she said. "You have to 
communicate and work together so 
that good things can happen." 

Roberts leaves for Atlantic City, 
N.J. in early September to begin com- 
peting for the Miss America crown. 
The pageant will be televised Sept. 14. 
"I want to be the best Miss North 
Carolina and make my family and the 
university proud," Roberts said. 

In order to fulfill contract obliga- 
tions, Roberts must postpone her se- 
nior year for one year. However, she 
will have about $30,000 in scholar- 
ships when she returns.

Public Affairs Lecture Sept. 1 1 at 8 p.m. 

Fineman, who 
has covered every 
national election 
since 1980, has a 
reputation for be- 
ing a man in the 
know. Following 
the 1988 and 1992 
Newsweek was 
selected "Best in 
the Business" by 
The American Journalism Review , pri- 
marily because of his work. The Forbes 
Media Guide recently recognized 
Fineman as a "standout in the press 

Fineman appears weekly on CNN's 
"Capital Gang Sunday," and he has been 
a regular on PBS's "Washington Week 
in Review" since 1982. In addition, he 
often serves as a guest on many other 
public affairs programs. 

"We are honored that Mr. Fineman 
has agreed to visit High Point just weeks 
prior to the 1996 elections," says Dr. 
Morris Wray, vice president for internal 
affairs. "Our students have the opportu- 
nity to interact directly with the person 
considered by many to be the nation's 
leading political analyst."

Panthers continue winning 
tradition with athletic awards 

By Megan Keenan 
Sports Editor 

Upon the conclusion of the 1995-96 
athletic season, High Point University 
once again received recognition for its 
outstanding performance. The athletic 
department was awarded the Joby 
Hawn Cup and the Messick Award. 

The Joby Hawn Cup is awarded 
annually to the Carolinas-Virginia Ath- 
letic Conference (CVAC) school with 
the strongest overall athletic program. 
The Messick Award is presented an- 
nually by conference coaches' votes to 
the CVAC school which best exempli- 
fies good citizenship and sportsman- 
ship among its players, coaches and 

The awards have become almost tra- 

dition for HPU. Of the 20 years exist- 
ence of the Joby Hawn Cup, HPU has 
won 1 1 times, placing no lower than 
third the other nine years. Of the six 
years the Messick Award has been 
awarded, HPU has received the award 
four times. 

The Panthers received 87 points for 
the Joby Hawn Cup, including 1 1 
points each for conference champion- 
ships in women's basketball and men's 

Ten points were awarded for first 
place finish in women's volleyball, 
second place in men's basketball and 
second place finishes in golf and 
women's soccer. Seven points were 
awarded to both the men's and 
women ' s cross country teams for con- 
ference wins. 

Eraser, an atypical Arnie film 

By Megan Morgan 

A&.E Editor 

Ahh...It's nice to see Arnold 
Schwarzenegger going back to his roots. 
With action movies scorching the movie 
theaters, "dcr Ahnuld" is back in his 
element. Flicks such as Independence 
Day, The Rock and Mission Impossible 
allow movie-goers to see favorite dra- 
matic actors dipping their toes into the 
visceral, but nobody does it better than 

Eraser gives the public Schwarz- 
enegger at his best. Neither snipers, au- 
tomatic weapons nor little funky explod- 
ing things could keep the man down. 
Eraser is more than a spotlight for Arnie; 
it is a homecoming. 

Eraser, in all aspects, is your typical 
run-of-the-mill violence fest. Arnold 
plays Jack Kruger, a man who makes 
federal witnesses disappear. As is the 
norm, he works alone. That's just as 
well, most of the bureau is dirty anyway. ( 

Vanessa Williams plays the reluctant 
witness who knows too much about shady 
government shenanigans for her and the 
government's own good. The two meet, 
and BLAMMO, the public has one hell 
of an action film on its hands. 

Unlike some shoot 'em-up films, 
Eraser does have a plot that actually 
makes some sense. Human emotion has 
a minor role, which is rare for Schwarz- 
enegger movies. Plot twists and spec- 
tacular special effects keep even non- 
action people interested. Sure, the alliga- 
tor scene doesn't quite come close to the 
White House exploding in that other big 
hit of the summer, but it did have its own 
certain sense of panache. 

Eraser is the perfect film for an 
evening of borderline mindless violence. 
The plot design actually makes one think, 
and the fast pace keeps it interesting. The 
humor is atypical Arnold, complete with 
one-liners and goofy supporting actors. 
Eraser is certifiable as a definite stop on 
anyone's movie tour list.

Chronicle staff 
another award- 

By Michael "G-Man" Gaspeny 

Chronicle Adviser 

Three years ago, when we changed 
ihe name and the look of this paper, three 
freshmen helped ease the controversy 
and smooth the transition. 

Thank God they're still with us. Se- 
niors Rob Humphreys, Megan Keenan 
and Andy Belk are hack for one last 
campaign. They've done almost every 
joh at the Chronicle except kowtow to 
the adviser. 

In large part, this trio is responsible 
for the paper's success - including first- 
place ratings by The American Scholas- 
tic Press Association (ASPA) during the 
last two years and selection as the top 
organization on this campus by the SGA 
in 1994-95. 

Humphreys is returning for his sec- 
ond year as editor in chief. He designed 
the front page which ASPA honored as 
one of the top 10 looks in American 
collegiate newspapers last year. A politi- 
cal science major from Orlando, Fla., he 
continues to moonlight as a sportswriter 
for The High Point Enterprise. 

In 1993, when the staff struggled 
with design glitches, Megan Keenan's 
computer sophistication brought order 
to our layouts. Since then, she has served 
as Greek editor and sportswriter. The 
math major from Vero Beach, Fla. is our 
new sports editor. 

In the beginning, Andy Belk's magic 
as an advertising representative kept the 
paper in the hlack. More recently, his 
photographs have sharpened the 
Chronicle's appearance. The achieve- 
ments of this business major from Bowie, 
Md. include procuring the autograph of 
Redskins' great John Riggins for the

Sophomore Brent Ayers, the assis- 
tant editor, brings us a fresh perspective. 
He excelled as a layout artist and emer- 
gency sports editor during his freshman 
year. An English major from Stuart, Va., 
Ayers admires authors as diverse as John 
Donne and Clyde Edgerton. 

Junior Heidi Coryell, an English 
major from Oakton, Va., will serve as 
contributing editor, handling a variety of 
story assignments. 

Megan Morgan, a sophomore from 
Ronceverte, W. Va., wrote such lively 
reviews last year that she has been el- 
evated to arts and entertainment editor. 
Morgan, an English major, replaces jun- 
ior Seth Carter, lead guitarist for Cousin

Don't believe the hype: 

Most myths about '96 Olympics weren't true 

Rob Humphreys 


Seems like everyone 
had plenty of Olympic 
fever this summer. 
Also seems like plenty of 
rumors about the Olympic 
Games were circulating 
faster than a synchronized 
swimmer's legs. 

My brother, a good friend and I 
journeyed to Atlanta July 24 for a five- 
day stay with my uncle in his northern 
Georgia home. Before we left, a multi- 
tude of Olympic horror stories was 
floating through the media about the 
Games - and this was before the bomb. 

For those of you who could not get 
off work to attend this truly amazing 
conglomeration of athletics and corpo- 
rate merchandising, don't think that at- 
tending the Olympics was as nerve- 
racking and expensive as some would 
have you believe. 

We found at least three rumors 
about the '96 Olympics were, for the 
most part, unjustified. 

Rumor #1 - "It's unbearably hot." 

I'm from Orlando, so it always 
makes me laugh to hear anyone north 
of Jacksonville complain about summer 
heat. At the Olympics, it was like 
Florida in the winter - fairly comfort- 
able. Most days people were donning 
sweaters after dark and generally stay- 
ing away from the much-hyped Coca- 
Cola mist-spray machines. 

Rumor #2 - "Transportation is 

Not really; you just had 
to know how to work the 
MARTA system and 
which downtown roads to 
stay away from. 

We waited no longer 
than 30 minutes for a 
single MARTA train and 
got to all our events well 
ahead of time. As for traf- 
fic, most Atlantans claimed it was less 
congested on the interstates than usual. 
Rumor #3 - "Price-gouging" 

Twenty-ounce Cokes and bottles 
of water sold for $ 1 in the streets. True, 
food prices were steep inside the ven- 
ues, but it compared with what you'd 
pay at any major sporting event. 

Heated competition from thou- 
sands of vendors drove prices way 
down, especially in parking. We 
parked a few hundred yards from the 
Georgia Dome and paid $ 1 - no- 
where close to the $75 some newspa- 
pers reported before the Games. 

Even professional scalpers 
couldn't do better than a face-value re- 
sale most of the time. Dream Team 
tickets were maybe double their price, 
and events such as the track and field 
prelims reaped anything but lucrative 

T-shirts, pins and an array of 
Olympic apparel could also be bought 
at a reasonable price. 

If you were at the Games, you can 
testify to the validity of this article. If 
you weren't fortunate enough to attend, 
don't believe the hype.

Board of trustees 
votes to pursue 
NCCA Div. I status 

The Board of Trustees voted 
Wednesday to upgrade HPU's eligi- 
bility for membership in the NCAA 
from Div. II from Div. I. 

Board action followed positive 
deliberation by the board's academic 
affairs and student life committees, as 
well as an ad hoc committee on ath- 
letics appointed by President Jacob C. 
Martinson last year and the faculty 
athletic committee. 

The projected move is consistent 
with the rapid growth of the univer- 
sity. Since 1985, enrollment has in- 
creased 106 percent to 2,616, the en- 
dowment has tripled and $27 million 
has been spent in improvements. 

"We have been approached by a 
Division I conference, and while there 
has been no conference vote, in the 
interest of the institution, we are con- 
sidering the options," Martinson said. 

Currently, High Point plays in the 
NCAA Div. II Carolinas- Virginia 
Athletic Conference. Under NCAA 
rules, once a university commences 
the reclassification process, it cannot 
qualify for post-season play until ap- 
proval is granted. 

The process, which will take at 
least two years, will officially com- 
mence at the end of the current aca- 
demic year. HPU may still qualify for 
Div. II post-season competition for 
the 1996- '97 academic year. 

Expert on Olympics 
to speak in Chapel 

Dr. John A. 
Lucas will speak 
in Hayworth 
Chapel at 1 1 
a.m. on Sept. 24. 
Lucas, the au- 
thor of three 
books and more 
than 100 articles 
on the Olympic 

Games, was appointed the official 
Olympic lecturer by the president of 
the Olympic Committee in June 1 993. 

He is also a professor of sport and 
science and former track and field 
coach at Pennsylvania State Univer- 
sity and a member of the Academy of 
Physical Education.

Young team starts five freshmen 

Veteran Pete Hiatrides returns as captain 


Tillman Darrell battles a NC Wesleyan defender. 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports Editor 

Despite the men ' s soccer team ' s 
youth and inexperience, Head 
Coach Woody Gibson is looking 
forward to a good season. 

Of the 1 1 starters, five are fresh- 
man and five are sophomores. The 
team looks to Pete Hiatrides, the 
team captain and three-year vet- 
eran, for leadership. Hiatrides 
started last season but was out for 
the pre-season with an injury. 
Despite the injury, he scored a 
goal in the first conference game 
of the season against St. Andrews. 

This year's recruits will be as- 
sets to the team. Judging from 
their former accomplishments, the 
team will not be shortchanged. 
Freshmen Chad Bailey and Sean 
Forte were named High School 
All-Americans. Already, Bailey 

has scored two goals and was 
named to the All Tournament 
Team this past weekend at the 
North Carolina State University 
Tournament in Raleigh. Freshmen 
Mike Wilson and Chris Burns were 
named to their high school all- 
state teams. 

With his extensive international 
experience, Tillman Darrell of Ber- 
muda is expected to contribute 
greatly. Transferring to the team 
are junior Jeff Canady from 
Andrews College and sophomore 
John Long from Suffolk County 
Community College. Both were 
named to their all-region teams in 
junior college. 

Returning starters Chan 
Sayaphet, Kelley Harris, Kevin 
Sellers and Nate Stephens are ex- 
pected to provide leadership and

Honors program 
still challenges 
students in its 
eleventh year 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

The honors program was established 
to create a set of academically stimulat- 
ing and interesting courses for High 
Point students. Eleven years later, the 
program's benefits have continued to 
reward its members. 

Admission into the program requires 
at least a 3.25 GPA and two faculty rec- 
ommendations. Dr. Tom Albritton, direc- 
tor of the honors program, also teaches 
a number of honors courses. 

"I try to create a greater freedom for 
students to pursue their own interests, 
express creativity and to trust and value 
that," said Albritton, who succeeded 
founding director Dr. Edward Piacentino 
last fall. 

Graduating with the designation "All 
University Honors" requires completion 
of 30 honors hours courses with a GPA 
of 3.5 or higher, both overall and in hon- 
ors courses. Albritton believes that many 
new students may be intimidated by the 
honors program because they fear the 
courses are too hard. Students are afraid 
their GPAs will fall if they take on too 
much course work. 

Albritton says these courses are de- 
signed to create "a more clearly defined 
community. They (honors students) are 
a more reliable cluster of students who 
share an interest in topics and course

Dominican athletes bunk up at 
HPU while training for Games 

Keith Corbett played 
an important role in 
hosting the Olympians 

By Geisa O'Reilly 

Staff Writer 

The 1 996 Olympic Games in At- 
lanta sparked the spirits of people all 
over the states, especially in North 

Four teams from the Dominican 
Republic were selected by the Atlanta 
Committee for the Olympic Games to 
have High Point as their host training 
site. The teams of judo, wrestling, 
weightlifting and track and field ar- 
rived on campus May 17. 

This was quite a surprise for the 
students, faculty and administration 

left on campus for the summer term. 
Dean Gart Evans was the official over- 
seer of the Olympians during their stay 
on campus and provided things they 
needed or requested at a moment's 
notice. Evans also provided the group 
with an interpreter since they spoke 
only Spanish. Senior Keith Corbett, 
who stayed on campus over the sum- 
mer to take classes and work for Dr. 
Roy Epperson, was drafted to help 
interpret for the Dominicans. 

"This has been the best experience 
of my life," said Corbett. "I'm an inter- 
national studies major, and spending 
10 hours out of the day for two months 
with them has helped me accomplish 
one of my goals."

Clinton's lofty regulations 
go too far in war on tobacco 

Word on the street: 

"What do you enjoy most about being a freshman?" 

By Jessee Morris 

Staff Writer 

Smoking kills. It 
causes lung cancer, heart 
disease and complica- 
tions for pregnant 
women. Tobacco ads, 
cigarette packs and 
magazine and newspaper 
stories have given every 
remotely intelligent indi- 
vidual the low-down on 
the dangers of tobacco. 
Yet somehow, the ever- 
lofty Bill Clinton thinks 
that propaganda and ad- 
vertising cloud the dan- 
gers of tobacco to consumers. 

This country is founded on freedom 
of expression, speech and choice. Some 
people smoke; some don't. No tobacco 
company has ever forced anyone to buy 
its product through advertising. 

Clinton argues that youth is the tar- 
get of this evil. Young people should be 
given a little more credit. Shading a sub- 
ject from the masses only creates confu- 
sion and curiosity which lead to more 
decadence than could he brought about 
by any kind of propaganda. 

Clinton has taken this suppression to 
the extreme, proposing a ban on tobacco 
advertisements at sporting events. What 
will he the fate of events relying so 
heavily on tobacco sponsors, such as 
NASCAR races? The government has 
stirred up a hornet's nest with new leg- 
islation that doesn't pertain to the cru- 
sade to keep youth from smoking. 

Tobacco means money to NASCAR. 
There should be no need for racing

people to be concerned with the moral- 
istic crusades of politicians. This coun- 
try is based on free enterprise where 
making money is the prime directive. 
How can the government contradict its 
very foundation by restraining the finan- 
cial dealings of businesses? 

Advertising doesn't kill people. 
Smoking does. Joe Camel and the 
Marlboro Man have yet to step out of 
any advertisement and grab some poor, 
naive, 14-year-old boy by the throat and 
shove a cigarette into his mouth. No one 
says smoking makes you healthier or 
stops the aging process. But smoking is 
a choice, just like choosing right from 

The government can't tell you 
whether or not you want to live with a 
chronic cough, smelly clothes or yellow 
fingers for the rest of your life. That's 
choice. The more decision-making rights 
we allow the government to take away, 
the less freedom we will have.

Professors should teach the subject at hand, 
not the subject of teaching us how to think 

Rob Humphreys 


Why do some pro- 
fessors believe 
they have to 
teach us how to think? Don't 
you find that rather patron- 

How exactly do you 
teach someone to think? If after 18 
years you don't possess the capacity to 
reason on your own, you shouldn't be 
in college. There's nothing worse than 
a professor who assumes he or she is 
responsible for shifting the "otherwise 
unused" gears in our green brains. 

This lofty approach to academia 
devalues a student's intelligence and 
deviates from the primary thrust of 
education: learning. Most students ap- 
preciate a friendly, straight-forward ap- 
proach to lecturing, not an abstract 
"what's the sound of one hand clap- 
ping?" method - or even worse, the 
bullyish, authoritative style which 
minimizes interaction between teacher 
and student. 

Let me illustrate. History Profes- 
sor James Stitt tells it like it is without 
getting sidetracked on any irrelevant 
tangents. His style of lecturing gives 
the facts with a little historical com- 
mentary and lets the student decide 
what to think of it. That's the way it 
should be. 

On the other hand, I've been in 
classes where any question or com- 
ment is viewed as a threat to the 
teacher's authority. In one case, a pro- 

fessor broke two pieces of 
chalk on the board in a 
rage after I asked him a 
simple, non-threatening 
question about the topic he 
was teaching. 

This individual pro- 
ceeded to call me a disrup- 
tive "smart-ass" when I 
stayed after class to talk 
reasonably about the situation. Despite 
my politeness and willingness to co- 
operate, he suggested I drop the class. 
Whatever happened to the Socratic 

Another example occurred a few 
semesters ago when I took a new course 
which I thought was going to involve 
the meaning of linguistics. We ended 
up talking about abstract philosophy for 
the first two days. Areas of discussion 
included "If you can't see Haworth Hall 
because you're in another part of town, 
is it still there?" alongside irrelevant 
snips of quantum physics. 

I, and a good number of others, 
dropped the class after two sessions. 
Students pay top dollar to get a quality 
education. That type of inefficiency in 
the classroom does not garner much 
appreciation, especially from those in- 
terested in learning something tangible. 
Leave that abstract, "Can God make a 
rock big enough He can't move it" kind 
of talk to the philosophy majors. 

College students deserve more 
credit from condescending professors 
who spend more time worrying about 
the state of our minds than lecturing 
on the subjects they're paid to teach.

hikers and mountain 
bikers can live in 
harmony on scenic 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

When John, my best friend and sweet- 
heart, told me that he was a mountain 
biker and that he wanted me to join him 
in this, his favorite activity I had a 
"typical" reaction. I envisioned kami- 
kaze maniacs bombing down mountain- 
sides without the slightest concern for 
nature or the environment. 

But I knew John well enough to know 
he wasn't that type. So I read books and 
magazines about mountain biking, in 
preparation for adding it to my other 
outdoor pursuits, hiking and horseback 
riding. And through my reading, I real- 
ized that most mountain bikers were like 
most bikers and equestrians, people who 
want to enjoy nature, not destroy or 
conquer it. 

That's why it disturbed me to read of 
the controversy among hikers, equestri- 
ans and mountain bikers over the use of 
trails and wilderness. Hikers complain 
about dodging manure on trails they share 
with equestrians, who worry about hik- 
ers spooking their horses. Mountain bik- 
ers, as newcomers, are viewed with sus- 
picion. They are not allowed on most 
trails in national or state parks. Hikers 
and equestrians have expressed concern 
about being "run over" by mountain bik- 
ers. They feel that any kind of mechani- 
cal device is out of place on the trail. 

But, as I put it to John, "What do you 
do if you're all three, like me — a hiker, 
an equestrian and a mountain biker?" 

Ironically, all three groups want the 
same thing — to preserve nature (in part, 
through the use of proper trails) so it can 
be enjoyed by all for generations to come. 
But each group protests that the other 
two groups cause as much or more dam- 
age on trails as it does. So they go around 
in circles, fighting each other instead of 
working together. 

Here are my suggestions to all three 

Behave responsibly. "Take only pic- 
tures and memories and leave only tire 
tracks, footprints or hoofprints." Also, 
"pack out at least as much as you pack 
in" — keep trails clean and natural. 

Observe trail rules. Don ' t ride or walk 
where you're not allowed. Be cautious 
and considerate in wet conditions — it's 
much easier to do damage then. Stay on 
the trail. "Exploring" is fun, but it can 
harm the environment. 

Announce yourself well in advance 
when approaching other trail users. 
"Heads up" is understood by most as a 
warning of "Be alert; I'm approaching." 
"Trail" can be mistaken as "I'm coming 
through, ready or not." 

If you participate in only one or two 
of the three activities (hiking, horseback 
riding or mountain biking), try the one(s) 
you haven't tried yet. Read about them; 
become informed. 

Set a good example. Get involved in 
local clubs. Help clean up and maintain 
trails. Encourage the opening of trails for 
your group and others. Work with the 
other groups; show that your group — 
hikers, equestrians or mountain bikers — 
is made up of good people who care 
about nature, the environment and each 

See you on the trail! 

British exchange students enjoy life in High Point 

Lucy Morris and Richard 
O'Rourke plan to spend 
their semesters studying 
and traveling in the U.S. 

By Alexandra Munday 
Staff Writer 

Participating in the student exchange 
program is an exciting way for British 
students Lucy Morris and Richard 
O'Rourke to learn more about America. 

Morris, 20, and O'Rourke, 25, ar- 
rived for the first time in the United 
States on Aug. 16 to spend a semester 
studying and traveling. 

Morris, from Shrewsbury, England, 
is majoring in elementary education with 
a focus in special needs. She enjoys 
taking classes that are not offered at 
Oxford University, such as photogra- 

"In England we only have teaching, 
theology and business administration," 
Morris said. "The college is different, 
too, because in England we don't have 
RA's in the dorms." 

O'Rourke, who is from Manchester, 
England, also attends Oxford Univer- 
sity. He is majoring in contemporary 
studies and plans to be an industrial

trainer or teacher. O'Rourke says he was 
"pleasantly surprised with the teaching 
system" and that the "teachers are a lot 
more personal." 

Even though Morris and O'Rourke 
have only been in the United States for a 
few weeks, they have already found many 
things to be different. O'Rourke says, 
"Culturally, it is a lot different." One 
thing they do miss about Oxford is the 
on-campus pub. 

One major difference Morris and 
O'Rourke have noticed is transporta- 
tion. England's public transportation 
system is much better than ours. Morris 
feels "stuck without a car." 

They are planning to do as much 
traveling as possible. O'Rourke wants to 
"explore the region" and "try to visit a lot 
of big cities." One city he has in mind is 
Chicago. Morris, on the other hand, hopes 
"to go to Washington, D.C." 

Bookstore's new assistant

On occasion, Joann 
Sting will stay until 
midnight to make sure 
the job gets done 

By Nikki Thompson 

Staff Writer 

Since being hired in June as the assis- 
tant bookstore manager, Joann Sting has 
proven to be a helpful addition to the 

She has changed the layout of the 
bookstore, alphabetized books, improved 
the clothing with different designs and 
moved the Evening Degree Program from 
one aisle to a more accessible area. When 
asked what her job entails, Sting says, "a 
little bit of everything." 

She handles getting books here on 
time for the next semester, getting the 
right books each professor orders, log- 
ging cash and sales reports and com- 
plaints about ordering supplies. 

When the bookstore is not in the rush 
of beginning a semester, the typical day 
includes going to work at about 7:30 
a.m., putting things in the computer, 
pricing books, getting the store ready for 
the next semester and working on the 
cash register. On regular days, she usu- 
ally leaves around 5 p.m., but during the 
semester rush, she sometimes doesn't 
get out until midnight. 

On the downside of her job, she says 
sometimes there are problems such as 
when the bookstore makes an order and

the product fails to sell. This situation 
leads to excessive inventory, and the 
store lacks room for other merchandise. 

Sting was hired from an off-campus 
bookstore at UNCG. She says that since 
she has been here, the university has 
made her feel right at home, and the 
faculty and staff have been very nice and 

Sting says that any time there are 
questions, complaints or suggestions, she 
would be more than happy to sit down 
with students or faculty and hear them

Jones wants a 
band for HPU 

By Eugene Liauw 

Staff Writer 

The High Point University Band: is 
it fantasy or reality? That question can 
only be answered if you continue to 
read this article. 

Have you ever played an instru- 
ment or considered yourself a musi- 
cian? You probably have; you just do 
not realize it when you tap your pencil 
on the desk in class to amuse yourself 
instead of paying attention to the 
teacher. You were imitating a drum 
when you were tapping out a certain 
beat of something you listened to ear- 
lier on the radio. 

Maybe yourparents influenced you 
by making you listen to classical mu- 
sic which eventually made you take up 
piano. Whatever instrument you de- 
cided to play, you either practiced for 
hours or not at all. You joined the 
marching bands, jazz bands and con- 
cert bands. But when you entered col- 
lege, you were shocked to see no band 
course. You did see an interest group 
meeting for band, but you figured it's 
not in the curriculum, so why attend? 

This year will be different as long 
as you make it happen. Mr. Allen 
Jones, assistant dean of admissions, 
has taken a strong interest in forming a 
band. He was in the United States 
Navy Band as a tuba player, arranger 
and composer. In 1977, he founded the 
Patriots Community Band in Elyria, 
Ohio, directing it until 1980. He has 
tried to start a band here for several 
years. Jones began his career because 
music has always been in his family - 
his father was a jazz trumpeter. 

He would like to see the band go 
through because of his love of music. 
Does this seem like something that 
interests you? If so, bring your instru- 
ment to the next meeting Sept. 20 at 5 
p.m. in the Wrenn Building. Make 
your dream of continuing your music 
career a reality.

Nine new faculty members join HPU staff 

By Kristen Long 

News Editor 

Nine new faculty members were 
hired this year, and there arc four posi- 
tions left to Till. 

Jeffrey M. Adams is a new assistant 
professor of psychology. He earned his 
Ph.D. with a concentration in social/per- 
sonality psychology from the University 
of Tennessee; an M.A. from California 
State University; and a B.A. from the 
University of California. 

Akintunde E. Akinade has joined the 
religion department as an assistant pro- 
fessor. He received a Ph.D. and M. Phil, 
degree from Union Theological Semi- 
nary in New York. While attending 
Perkins School of Theology, he got his 
M. Div. degree. At Obafemi Awolowo 
University in Nigeria, Akinade earned 
his B.A. in religious studies. 

After being in the private sector as a 
certified public accountant, Scott Davis

guide, Corbet! traveled with the group around the Triad and assisted 
the Dominicans during the Olympic Torch Run, which came 
through High Point June 24. The Dominican athletes were em- 
braced by the community as well as the students, who found that 
relating to another culture would be an important lesson learned. 

"Winning a medal in the Olympics is not our primary goal," 28- 
year-old wrestling trainer Diego Pcsqucira said. "There is a more 
important issue, and that is to improve the relations between our 
country and the U.S." 

Pcsqucira, who doubles as a journalist in Santo Domingo, said 
that both the U.S. and Dominican Republic have a lot they can learn 
from one another. He added that a return trip would give HPU the 
opportunity to learn more about the Dominican culture while 
providing the team a chance to repay what they consider a debt to 
the school. 

"II given the opportunity, we would love to come back and 
visit," said Judo coach Dr. Alqumiedes Ortiz. Cruz. "The people of 
High Point have been so receptive to our needs, we would like to 
repay them lor their kindness by putting on some teaching clinics." 

In the attempt to improve relations between the two countries, 
Dr. Ortiz. Cruz would like to bring a small team of professors and 
coaches back to the United Stales. The early stages of a return trip 
are in the works for late October or early November.

work and share a value in doing well," he said. 

The work is difficult but rewarding. Most of the general educa- 
tion requirements arc available with an honors component. Upper 
level courses that offer honors sections are generally concentrated 
in the English, Education, History, Foreign Language, Religion 
and Business departments. 

Albritton recommends freshman and sophomore honor students 
take as many honors sections as they can in the general education 
classes. If there are not enough honors courses in one major, stu- 
dents can contract up to nine hours through the department. 

Another facet of the program is the Odyssey Club, which orga- 
nizes activities for honors program members. An overnight retreat 
has been scheduled for this month, and the "College Bowl," an 
academic quiz game in which teams compete for money, is planned 
for October. 

Albritton encourages all eligible students to apply for admis- 
sion into the program and stresses the importance of "sticking with 
it" once enrolled. "Enjoy your teachers and your classmates," 
Albritton said. "Your transcript will reflect your efforts."

Summer Advantage Program 
gives freshmen a big edge 

By Gus Vieira 

Greek Editor 

"Summer Advantage '96? AIM?" 
Sound Farmiliar? Well, this summer 63 
incoming freshmen attended the Sum- 
mer Advantage Program. 

Just one year ago, I completed the 
S.A. Program of '95. So why was I back 
in '96? Well, this time I guess you can 
say I was on the other side of the ball. I 
served as one of the six student mentors, 
or should I say "learning facilitators." 

Over the summer, students enrolled 
in BHS 101 -Foundations for Academic 
Success and Math or English. BHS KM 
was split into three sections: lecture, 
application and mentor classes. This al- 
lowed students to grasp academic tech- 
niques and applicable life skills while 
discussing personal college issues. 

The S.A. Program was started by 
Dr. Allen Goedeke in 1989. Back then it 
was called the A.I.M. Program (Achiev- 
ing Intellectual Maturity). Back then, the 
intellectual maturity may have been the 
only achievement by the students but, 
not now. Through Dr. G's efforts and 
continuing development of the program, 
he has created numerous "transitions" 
which have allowed students to maxi- 
mize their potential. 

The academic challenges that the 
students face in the summer are an inte- 
gral part of the program. But the social 
obstacles that many college freshmen 
face are where the real advantage takes 
place for these students. "Students cre- 

Through critical processing 
and application situations, 
students learn teamwork 
and how to depend on each 

ate themselves a scene, self-confidence 
to do college work and an adaptation that 
makes them feel part of the University," 
said Dr. G. 

Through critical processing and ap- 
plication situations, students learn team 
work and how to depend on each other, 
which was clearly defined at our week- 
end retreat at Camp Cheerio We went on 
nature walks, obstacle courses and I can't 
forget to mention, the night under the 
stars, which allowed many of us to ex- 
press our emotions but most importantly, 
be together as one. 

I guess you can say, the program 
benefits each student in its own special 
way. But, nonetheless, it's beneficial for 
all of us to realize how someone like Dr. 
G. can devote so much time and effort to 
better his students, not only as academic 
stars but as individuals. 

I can easily say this learning experi- 
ence is one that we will never receive in 
another classroom. Dr.G. has filled our 
hearts with motivation and a desire to 
succeed. I can only hope that this moti- 
vation follows us on our "archway, 
through this untraveled world," and 
makes "our goals be our achievements."

ter ahead. 


* Not a Greek organization 

Last semester, the members of Al- 
pha Phi Omega put in 607 hours and 
25 minutes of service for the fraternity, 
school, community and nation. Just 
over 192 of those hours were completed 
by APO's top five members: April 
Kabbash (43.30), Lee Whitehead 
(43:10), Jen McDonald (36:30), Brian 
Davis (34:50) and Chris Harwell 
(34:30). Last year APO won the out- 
standing volunteer organization of the 
year award for donating over 1 ,200 
hours of community service. 

APO's rush started Sept. 4 with an 
open house and party. We had a great 
turnout of 28 people. Throughout rush 
we delivered phone books, built picnic 
tables and had a poker run and movie 
night. The pledge inductions will be 
Sept. 20. 

APO has many service projects 
planned for the semester. They include 
volunteering at blood drives, doing 
Adopt-A-Highway, visiting kids at a 
group home, working at both the ani- 
mal shelter and the Salvation Army and 
cooking dinner at the Open Door Shel- 
ter. With these projects, we should have 
no problem surpassing our 1 ,200-hour

Agents jam like Phish 
and The Grateful Dead 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

Agents of Good Roots plays a 
unique blend of rock, blues and jazz 
that has been compared to The Dave 
Matthews Band. But Agents' debut al- 
bum Where'd You Get That Vibe? has 
a jazzier groove than Dave Matthews. 

"One Strange Land" has a Phish- 
like feel musically and lyrically. The 
song introduces us to the subtle power 
of Andrew Winn's low raspy vocals. 
And J.C. Kuhl's great saxophone solo 
adds depth to the song and counter- 
points Winn's acoustic guitar. 

"Straight" is the most upbeat song 
on the album. The jazzy guitar chords 
and smooth melody line make it a per- 
fect party-pleaser. Bass player Stewart 
Myers sings on this tune and his high, 
clear, crisp voice gives the song a pop 

My favorite song is the title track 
which has a funky rap flavor. Drum- 


mer Brian Jones, instead of singing on 
this song, screams with some in-your- 
face attitude. But the group returns to 
its classic style in the middle of the song 
and pulls off a soulful and soft-tempered 

Agents focus on song-writing. The 
guitar complements all the other instru- 
ments instead of drowning them out like 
most guitars do. Also, three people in 
the band sing and do it well. So there is 
no guitar hero or cocky front man that 
overshadows the group. There are just 
four guys who have an equal part in the 
music and love to jam. 

Agents, from Richmond, Va., have 
performed with big acts such as The 
Dave Matthews Band at many premier 
clubs in the East. 

Their energetic shows and ability to 
jam like the Grateful Dead and Phish 
have earned them a spot as the only un- 
signed band on this year's H.O.R.D.E. 
tour. The band performs at Ziggy's to- 

Petty rocks on She's 
the One soundtrack 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 
newest album is their freshest sound- 
ing in years. Although Petty's music 
has grown to be predictable, the 
soundtrack to She 's the One shows a 
willingness to develop his style farther 
than previous attempts. 

In a welcome surprise, Petty has de- 
cided to exhibit more of his special sort 
of humor in She's the One's lyrics. In 
"Zero from Outer Space," he sings "I 

saw you kick that dog when the wind blew off your wig." Weird maybe, but funny 
phrases are one of the memorable aspects of this album. 

Wild/lowers illustrated Petty's down-home personality well, but it was also the 
same territory he had covered on many of his previous albums. With She 's the One, 
his lyrics have actually improved. "Hope Your Never" has Petty condemning a 
relationship with "I hope you never fall in love with somebody like you." The calm 
tempo of that song is in contrast to "Grew Up Fast." This song shows him defend- 
ing his personal stake in a relationship with the yell, "Well you know what I am, so 
don't treat me like I'm someone else." These lyrics are simple but surprisingly 

She 's the One is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' best effort since Full Moon 
Fever because of its variety. Petty has managed to combine many different ele- 
ments of his personality into one great musical product.

Ziggyfest benefits AIDS Task Force 

By Scott Bennett 

Special to the Chronicle 

Lollapalooza, H.O.R.D.E. and the Further Festival are all musical 
events that the younger generations Hocked to this year. Added to this is 
the Triad's own multi-cultural musical carnival Ziggyfest. The concert 
look place at Ziggy's, a popular club in Winston-Salem. 

The shows started at 2 p.m. and ran until 2 a.m. for a low price of $5. 
Musical acts ranged from Bluegrass and R&B to Rap and Alternative. 

What made this concert so different was that all the performers do- 
nated their time. Ziggyfest was organized to heighten HIV and AIDS 
awareness and raise money for the AIDS Task Force, an organization that 
provides care and support for those stricken with the disease. 

At first, the crowds were so small it seemed Ziggyfest would fizzle 
out before it even got started. However, by 10 p.m. Ziggy's was packed 
and rock groups like ODD and rappers like GI were whipping the crowd 
into a frenzy, making the night such a success that another Ziggyfest is in 
the works for next year. 

Anyone wishing to donate time to the AIDS Task Force should call 
(910)-723-5031. Your help and support are greatly needed.

Phantom mesmerizes Charlotte 

By Andrew T. White 

Staff Writer 

Have you ever seen a musical that you loved every minute and every 
scene of so much that you could barely sit still? Good. Neither had I until I 
saw the Broadway production of Phantom of the Opera Aug. 30 in Char- 
lotte. It was a black tie affair at which playgoers showed up decked out in 
their best attire. The "gala," as the event was called, started at 5 p.m. with a 
buffet and cocktails and was one of the highlights of the evening. 

After the gourmet hors d'oeuvres were served, it was time to see the 
show, which started at 8. The opening act was magnificent with great cos- 
tumes and beautiful music. The Phantom, as expected, was breathtaking in 
his make-up. His voice, of course, stole the show. From the very first time 
he appeared to the very end of the production he cast a mesmerizing spell 
over the audience, intoxicating crowd with the "music of the night." 

The highlight of the evening was at the end of act one when the chande- 
lier fell, narrowly missing the audience closest to the stage. The beginning 
of the next act, "Masquerade," had fantastic costumes and great special ef- 
fects. The Phantom appeared on stage at the bottom of the steps and then, 
with a flash of light, he disappeared and reappeared at the top of the stairs. 
Overall, the visual effects were astounding throughout the performance. 

A local, when asked her opinion of the event, replied, "It was awesome. 
That's the only thing I can think of to describe it." As with everyone else, 
myself included, the word "awesome" typifies the whole Phantom of the 
Opera experience. So, if you ever get the chance to see the Phantom of the 
Opera , I would suggest you do so, and be the first one in line for tickets.

Twelfth Night full of 
sex and drunkenness 

The perfect college student play 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

The North Carolina Shakespeare 
Festival's performance of Twelfth Night 
or, What You Will is great. It is the per- 
fect play for college students because it 
is chock-full of sex and drunkenness. 

The dominant use of mistaken iden- 
tity is well executed by the NCSF. The 
jokes are well delivered, even if one docs 
not quite follow all the action in the 
Elizabethan comedy. The play begins as 
Viola is shipwrecked in the land of 
Illyria, which is a unique place. Viola 
then begins posing as her twin brother, 
Sebastian, who she thought was dead, 
and is soon taken in by Orsino, The Duke 
of Illyria. 

The Duke utilizes the masquerading 
Viola as a surrogate suitor to woo the 
idealized Olivia, who does not love the 
Duke. Of course, this is when the plot 
twists because Olivia falls for 
"Sebastian" like a school girl. 

To make matters more complicated, 
Viola has the hots for Orsino. To make 
a long story short, the real Sebastian, 
who isn't really dead (big surprise!), 
shows up in Illyria and winds up sleep- 
ing with and marrying Olivia. This re- 
ally licks the Duke off until he finds out 
that the masquerading Viola is really a 
woman. When she tells him how much 
she loves him. he proposes marriage to 
her even before he sees her in a dress. 

This is a quick synopsis of the cen- 

tral plot and does not even attempt to 
venture into sub-plots or supporting 
characters. Bui really, it's not all that 
complicated and the action is very easy 
to follow when it is seen live. 

A familiar High Point University 
face plays a large role in the play. 
Michael Kamptman, who teaches in the 
theater department and acts with the 
NCSF, plays Feste, a clown. He is mar- 
velous; he even gets to sing. Kamptman 
delivers witty lines such as, "Many a 
good hanging prevents a bad mar- 
riage..." Shakespearean scholar Anne 
Barton calls Feste, "the chief spokes- 
man of the play." 

The elements which often go unno- 
ticed but can make or break a produc- 
tion such as sets, music, lighting and 
staging are well done too. Twelfth Night 
uses a pianist who is on stage most of 
the time, so music is an integral part of 
this play. It is so much a part that it is 
the subject of the play's first few lines, 
""If music be the food of love, play on/ 
Give me excess of it..." 

The sets are done in an Art Nouveau 
style, which is strangely appropriate for 
the fancy Elizabethan period. The set 
movement is precise, which allows the 
action to continue without inconvenient 
interruptions between scenes. 

Twelfth Night can be seen at the High 
Point Theatre Sept. 1 3, 22, 28 and Oct. 
4. The Winter's Tale and Cyrano de 
Hergerac are two other plays the festi- 
val is performing this season.

Trainspotting typifies 
surreal drug genre 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Trainspotting, directed by Danny 
Boyle and based on the novel by Irvine 
Welsh, is yet another of Miramax's dar- 
lings to cause the public to cringe. The 
movie takes audiences into the lives of 
four heroin addicts and their spiral into 
self-destruction. Narrated by Renton, 
frail ringleader of the group of misfits, 
Trainspotting grasps the true desperation 
of surviving life and addiction. 

Renton, played by Ewen McGregor, 
is a likable guy whose luck is astound- 
ing, in its own twisted way. He, along 
with his friends Tommy, Sick Boy and 
Begbie, go about life, love and employ- 
ment through a drug-induced haze, of- 
ten with hilarious results. This surreal- 
istic romp around Scotland shows both 
the high and low points of daily life 
through the eyes of Renton The group 
goes through many misadventures from 
botched attempts at clubbing to the 
"worst toilet in Scotland." To say much 
more about the various deviations from 
normality would destroy the movie's 

Trainspotting is a completely differ- 
ent film from what your humble reviewer 


Pwnan JUten> • IMnck wwka no • Mn • BMtM 

expected it to be. Rather than the dark 
melodrama typical with films about 
drug use, Trainspotting is refreshing. 
The film touches on the down spiral of 
the boys into addiction and its effects, 
but, rather than growing melancholy, it 
quickly proceeds to something more 
amusing. However, there are a couple 
of scenes that would disturb more sen- 
sitive viewers. 

A highly entertaining film, 
Trainspotting is a refreshing break from 
the run-of-the-mill summer fare. Al- 
though the dialogue is occasionally hard 
to understand, due to the heavy Scot- 
tish brogue and the speed with which 
Renton speaks, the actions make up for 
what is missed. Trainspotting is an ex- 
cellent movie and a definite must-see 
in this reviewer's book of cinema. 

The Fan entertains 
all baseball freaks 

"Being a baseball fan myself, I could almost feel 
a little sorry for Gil — almost, but not quite." 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

When I walked into the theater to 
see/Tie Ean, I carried two opinions with 
me: my own, which was that any movie 
about baseball had to be good, and that 
of a friend who had already seen this new 
thriller and ranked it up there with Seven 
on her "sick" list. 

So, how did I feel 
when I walked out of 
the theater? Hard to say. 
Robert DeNiro and 
Wesley Snipes defi- 
nitely gave the audience 
outstanding perfor- 
mances. I almost forgot 
they were just actors; 
that's how deeply I got 
into the plot. 

DeNiro plays the fan 
Gil, a middle-aged knife 
salesman who's in the process of losing 
his job, restrained from visiting his son 
and obsessively preoccupied with the 
game of baseball. His mood swings and 
excessive cursing seem out of place, but 
then you remember: oh, yeah, this guy 
is a bit psychotic! 

The fan's man obsession is with the 
career of star center fielder Bobby 
Rayburn (Snipes). The player is every- 
thing you would expect from a young 
major-leaguer — cocky, spoiled and 

While others criticize how much 
money Rayburn makes, Gil defends him 
because he believes no price is too high 




than life, 

it's fair. 

— Gil, played by 
Robert DeNiro 

for a rare and wondrous talent like 

When the star stumbles into a slump, 
however, things get interesting. How far 
would you go to help your idol get back 
on his feet? 

Overall, this movie's story line is ex- 
tremely interesting. Though I wouldn't 
say I was entertained, and you won't 
catch me running to Blockbuster to lee 
it again, I definitely appre- 
ciated the glimpse into the 
life and mind of an ob- 
sessed fan. Being a base- 
ball fan myself, I could al- 
most feel a little sorry for 
Gil — almost, but not quite. 
The production of the 
film was very well done; 
not one detail was left out. 
Casting was perfect. Who 
better to play a violent 
psycho than DeNiro? 
(Cape Fear, anyone?) Costuming was 
great, right down to DeNiro's used-car 
salesman look and the authentic Braves 
jersey for Snipes. I also loved the "mood 
music." Every time Gil started to lose 
his cool, Nine Inch Nails started scream- 
ing obscenities in the background. Clas- 

Maybe this is one of those flicks you 
just have to see, even if it leaves you with 
an "icky" feeling. I would like to encour- 
age our HPU ballplayers to see it; maybe 
you all can tell me if Gil was right when 
he said, "Baseball's better than life; it's

Tower Players kick off 
season with Oliver! 

The play runs Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Rehearsals have just begun, and 
this year is already beginning to look 
like a stunner for the Tower Players. 
Starting the year of theatrical excur- 
sions is Oliver! by Lionel Bart. Based 
on the novel, Oliver Twist by Charles 
Dickens, the play is one of many pro- 
ductions to be performed by students 
and alumni this year. 

Directed by Ron Law, Oliver! is 
the fall musical and the first perfor- 
mance of the new school year. For the 
next two months, students, local chil- 
dren and a large technical and artistic 
staff will be giving their all to put on 
the fall musical. The show opens Oct. 
3 1 and runs through Nov. 2. 

Following Oliver! there will be 
eight one act plays directed by stu- 

dents. Auditions will be announced in 
due time. These plays are part of a di- 
recting course offered to students and 
are open to the public. 

Second semester kicks off with 
two smaller scale productions: The 
Importance of Being Earnest by Os- 
car Wilde and Marvin s Room by Scott 
McPherson. These two productions 
are the nonmusical portion of the 
Tower Players' repertoire. Although 
smaller in cast size, Marvin's Room 
and The Importance of Being Earnest 
are the major undertakings that are just 
as entertaining as the larger musical. 

All productions this year, save the 
one acts, are directed by Ron Law. 
Tickets for the musical generally go 
on sale two weeks before the opening 
night and tickets for later shows will 
be announced. All in all, the 1996-97 
theatrical year shows great promise. 

Don't go to the theater 
when a rental's only $3 

By Heather Sitler 

Special to the Chronicle 

OK, so you worked all summer flip- 
ping burgers so you could have extra cash 
for the occasional beer and pizza binges, 
but you probably weren't thinking about 
saving money for the movies, huh? 

Who can afford to spend $7 on a 
movie that only gets you off campus for 
two hours? Not me. Probably not most 
of us. So, the solution for cheap enter- 
tainment? Simple, rent videos! A card is 
free, and videos can be rented for as low 
as 99 cents and as high as $3 plus tax. 
Blockbuster is my movie theater. 

OK, so I told you the place. Now you 
probably want me to suggest the video, 
too, huh? Rent my personal all-time fa- 
vorite. Clerks. This independent film, a 
black and white (Stop whining), explores 
a day in the life of two ordinary clerks 
who endure extraordinary situations. 

While trying halfheartedly to make it 
through another day of the grind, these 
two overworked counter boys manage to 
play hockey, visit a funeral home, and 
get fined for selling cigarettes to a four- 
year-old, all while on the clock. 

Their razor-sharp wit and sick sense 
of humor give a whole new meaning to 
customer appreciation and may make you 
appreciate not being their customer. This 
movie is full of surprises most of which 
will make you glad you don't have their 
jobs. Look for this at your video store, 
and tell the clerk Heather sent you. 

And if there's a party drought this 
weekend, rent Mall Rats (Relax: this 
one's in color). I promise you won't be 
disappointed. The killer soundtrack in- 
cludes music by Soul Asylum, Alice in 
Chains, Seaweed.The Jesus Lizard and 
Bad Religion. This picture merits a four- 
star rating. It's worthy skipping a killer 
party for.

Women's soccer rebuilds with 
acquisition of 10 freshmen 

Coach Heather Puckett remains optimistic 
despite losing eight players from last season 

Last year the women's soccer team 
lost in the finals of the CVAC for a 
second place tournament finish. Coach 
Heather Puckett believes the team will 
contend for the championship again. 

That will be tough considering the 
team is young and has lost eight play- 
ers from last season. Filling those 
voids will be a challenge, but Puckett 
keeps a positive outlook. 

"I believe they are better techni- 
cally and tactically," said Puckett, in 
her third year as coach. "I believe they 
are better athletes. It's just a matter of 
adjusting to the college game." 

High Point's first game resulted in 
a 5-0 loss to Catawba. Puckett did find 
something to build on for future 
games, though, as the Panthers blanked 
St. Andrews 6-0 in their second game 
for win No. I. 

"We've done a better job of spread- 
ing the field wide," Puckett said. "Our 
defense has gotten a little bit better." 

Ten of the team's 17 players are 
freshmen and five are sophomores. 
Two seniors, forward Kat Krusas and 
defender Brandy Baughman, will pro- 
vide leadership and the most collegiate 

One problem the team must deal 
with is injuries. In the Catawba game, 
some of the injured players saw lim- 
ited playing time, but Puckett expects 
the team to be back at full strength 
within a couple weeks. 

The Panthers travel to Mt. Olive 
Saturday and battle Lenoir Rhyne Sep- 
t.18 in their next home game.

Team continues to improve, faces four conference games ahead 

MEN'S SOCCER, continued from frontpage 

stability to the team. Brad Baumgarncr 
is expected to raise his level of play al- 
ter starting part-time last season. 

The Panthers are coming off of a 6-9- 
3 record last season. Their main prob- 
lems include lack of depth and maturity. 
"We still have a long way to go. We need 

maturity to compete at this level. We 
can't just play and expect to be consis- 
tently successful at this level," said 
Coach Gibson. 

The team has consistently improved 
through hard work and uniting different 
playing styles. During the pre-season,

HPU defeated North Carolina 
Wesleyan College and Greensboro Col- 
lege. Since the beginning of the regu- 
lar season, the team has defeated St. 
Andrews and Elon College. 

Last weekend, the Panthers partici- 
pated in the North Carolina State Uni- 
versity Tournament. In the first game, 
DePaul University defeated the Pan- 
thers 4-0. Two goals were scored in the 
last three minutes of play as the Pan- 
thers tried to come from behind. 

Next, the team played the best match 
thus far against Mercer University. Four 
factors contributed to the 5-3 loss: fa- 
tigue, several mistakes that cost goals, 
average play by goal keepers and lack 
of depth. Also a factor was Hiatrides' 
ejection in the first game for taking a 
man down from behind. As a result, he 
had to sit out the whole tournament 
starting 15 minutes into the first game. 

With four conference games slated 
in the next two weeks, injured people 
need to get healthy. Freshman Sean 
Forte, expected to be a key player, is 
out with an injury. 

"I'm looking forward to the rest of 
the season and a good year. The only 
way to improve is to play better 
people," said Gibson. 

"We've got a lot of talent. It's 
been hard to put it all together, 
which is what we need to do. " 
-Chad Bailey 

"The team has been young 
due to lack of senior 
leadership. It's important that 
freshmen don't get down on 
themselves because a lot is 
banking on them. "

Volleyball vies for another CVAC championship 

By Megan Keenan 
Sports Editor 

After winning last year's conference 
championship, the women's volleyball 
team looks toward another successful 

Picked in the pre-season polls to win 
the championship and ranked sixth in the 
Atlantic region, the team is reliant on its 
experience. Leading the team are co-cap- 
tains Lori Kuykendall, Tiffanie Wilson 
and Anitra Lambeth. 

Big things arc also expected from 
Karah Hensley, last year's Conference 
Freshman of the Year. Holly Hendley 
will continue as a starter after coming in 
second for Conference Player of the 

"Holly is probably the best all around 
player on the team," said Coach Teresa 
Faucette. The additional starting position 
rotates between Pam Plummerand Jamie 
Walsh. Both arc vital to the program in 
adding special skills through their dif- 
ferent playing style. 

Four freshmen add a new perspective 
to the play. Nikki Ferguson comes in as 


We will be our own worst enemy. 
We can 't get a big head, we have 
to stay focused and we have to 
work together. 

- Coach Teresa Faucette 

defensive specialist and a back-up set- 
ter to Kuykendall. Aisha Boyd has been 
the surprise of the new crew. "We didn't 
expect her to be far along in her skills as 
she is. Her playing time does not reflect 
that yet, but it will," said Faucette. Walk- 
on Kristen Lewis and Tahirah Dock are 
also expected to contribute greatly. 

Goals have been set high as the team 
aims to win the conference champion- 
ship and make it to regional playoffs. 
Thus far this season, the team is 3-2. 
"We've got to find the right chemistry 
to play up to our potential," said 

The women played Elon yesterday and 
will travel to West Virginia this week- 
end for a tournament.

Cross country teams prepare to run over competition 

Men aim to defend title for fifth year 


David Duggan and Keith Corbett 
take a breather during practice. 

By Tracy Snellbaker 

Staff Writer 

For the past four years, the men's 
cross country team has run over its 
competition en route to the conference 
title. Moving to the new and tougher 
Carolinas- Virginia Athletic Confer- 
ence (CVAC) did not change anything. 

The men came away with the con- 
ference title, a 62-12 record, the Run- 
ner of the Year and a number of All- 
Conference honors. 

With three returning runners and 

some good- looking freshmen, the 
cross country team has a nice mixture 
of experience and youth to defend its 
title — again. 

The number one runner for High 
Point and earning the CVAC's Runner 
of the Year honors was David Duggan. 
As a freshman, he set the course record 
in the Conference championship meet 
with a 27:23 run. Shon Hildreth and 
Christian Kell, numbers two and three 
for the Panthers, both earned All-Con- 
ference honors last year. 

The three new team members are 
freshmen Kenji Dorsey, Ron Davis and 
Mark Klamarus. They are expected to 
run well; however, like freshmen in any 
sport, they are an "unknown quality un- 
til they get into a meet," said Coach 
Bob Davidson. 

The freshmen will have a telling ef- 
fect on how successful the team is at 
defending the championship. In cross 
country, a team takes the best five 
scores. So the winner's time doesn't 
matter as much as how far back the 
fourth and fifth runners are. 

Also, injuries will have a major ef- 
fect. With only six runners, the men 
don't have much room for illness and 
injuries. Injuries aren't a big problem 
now, except for a few nagging pains. 
But if injuries skip over this team and 
the freshmen progress, 1 996 could end 
much like the past four years — with a 
conference championship.

By Tracy Snellbaker 

Staff Writer 

The women's cross country team is set 
to defend last season's championship 
from the inaugural year of the Caroli- 
nas- Virginia Athletic Conference. The 
title was nothing new, because the 
women have won the past three confer- 
ence championships when counting the 
last two years in the NAIA. 

However, for the First time in three 
years, there is no Elizabeth Young to lead 
the team. Young graduated last year and 
took with her last year's Runner of the 
Year honor and the best women's time 
in school history. 

However, Coach Bob Davidson be- 
lieves that freshmen runners could give 
the Panthers a stronger team than last 
year. With three freshmen, one red-shirt 
and four returning runners, there will be 
no shortage of runners, which the team 
battled last year. 

Davidson is looking for big years out 
of his two captains, Geisa O'Reilly and 
Melissa Lansberg. O'Reilly was the only 
other runner last year besides Young to 
garner All-Conference honors. Lansberg 

had some nagging injuries and battles 
with the flu that kept her from concen- 
trating on running. But hopefully that is 
behind her and she will finally show what 
she can do. 

Also returning are Aga Potrezbowski,* 
Holly Jurgensen and Kerry Hallenback. 
While a lot more is expected out of 
Jurgensen, anything from Hallenback 
would be a plus after being sidelined last 
year with an injury. 

The three new faces are freshmen 
Heather Bowers, Mindy Cox and Katie 
Powers. Powers and Cox, who have had 
only one week of practice because of in- 
juries, come to the Panthers with good 
reputations. Powers has shown the best 
potential. She has run the best in prac- 
tice and Coach Davidson hopes that she 
will ease the loss of Young. 

While injuries and graduation could 
hurt and have hurt the women, Davidson 
is very optimistic. 

"We have the talent to compete and de- 
fend both (men's and women's) cham- 
pionships, but the small things, such as 
injuries, will be a telling factor of how 
the season will go," said Davidson.

Baltimore welcomes Ravens with open arms 

By Todd "Red" Mcssncr 
Sports Writer 

Once again, the National Football 
League has returned to the gridiron. A 
lot has happened since the Dallas Cow- 
boys won the Super Bowl, notably play- 
ers and teams relocating to new homes 
in new cities. The most publicized of any 
football story late this summer was the 
move of the former Cleveland Browns 
to Baltimore. 

Naturally, moving a team that has 
been in the league so long is going to be 
talked about, but there is no way that Bal- 

timore deserves the bum rap it is receiv- 

I would love for someone to tell me 
how it is Baltimore's fault that Art 
Modell asked the city to take in his foot- 
ball team. This was a man who was try- 
ing to operate a business and was get- 
ting no support from the city of Cleve- 
land. If you were running a team and 
had to choose between the chaos in 
Cleveland or the open arms of the fans 
in Baltimore, what would you do? I 
would have left in a heartbeat. 

If you doubt me, obviously you 
missed the opening game in Baltimore. 

The place was going absolutely nuts. Me- 
morial Stadium, which only held 54,000 
people when the Orioles played there, 
was sold out at 62,000. Extra seats were 
added for fans who want to support an 
NFL team. 

So the Cleveland fans are unhappy. 
Boo-hoo. All this is, to me, is their turn 
to go through what plenty of other cities 
have gone through already. All you need 
to look at are the outrageous salaries and 
rocketing ticket prices to realize there will 
always be a business aspect to sports. 

Everyone wants to talk about how 
Cleveland has lost part of its identity. 

Well, what about Baltimore in 1983?The 
Colts left town at 3 a.m. through snow 
flurries without a person in Baltimore 
knowing about it. Then the city was 
teased with hopes of an expansion team 
and you know where they ended up. 

The Cardinals, Raiders, Rams and 
Buccaneers were supposedly going to 
Baltimore; no dice. Finally, 13 years 
later, Mr. Modell ended a very long dry 
spell for Baltimore. Hey, Cleveland fans, 
think about this: in three years, when the 
league helps you get a team back, it will 
still be called the Browns, and it'll still 
wear the colors you know and love. 


College football season looks like a roller coaster 

Nebraska will be tough, but expect Bobby and 
the 'Noles to bring home another national title 

By Meghan Kovalcik 
Sports Writer 

The initials TGIF ring true. Thank 
Goodness It's Football season, even if 
there isn't collegiate football here at 
High Point. 

There are several reasons why I en- 
joy collegiate football. A) The sport lasts 
longer than a two minute Tyson match. 
B) Every game counts, just one loss and 
hopes of a title fall by the wayside. C) 
The game is unpredictable. 

The second game of the year showed 
how unpredictable the game can be. The 
University of Southern California, ex- 
pected to win the PAC 1 0, was predicted 
to beat Penn State on its way to a na- 
tional title. But the 6th-ranked Nittany 
I. ions, contending for a Big- 10 title, 
pulled off the upset against USC. 

Michigan and Ohio State also cur- 
rently rank in the nation's top 10. Look 

for Ohio State to seek revenge against 
Michigan, for last year's loss that 
opened the door for the Cinderella Wild- 
cats of Northwestern. Even though PSU 
has a young team, look for the Nittany 
Lions to come out smelling like a rose. 

As long as Joe Paterno is coach, Penn 
State will always be a contender for the 
national title. But the national title 
should elude PSU for yet another year, 
especially until the Big 10 and PAC 10 
are not allowed to play in a champion- 
ship game away from the Rose Bowl. 

The main question of the season is: 
will the Cornhuskcrs of Nebraska plow 
their way to a third national champion- 
ship in a row? Nebraska's solid-as-a- 
rock defense should lead Nebraska to 
the championship game, but three times 
probably won't be a charm. The 
Cornhuskcrs' stillest competition should 
be from Texas and Oklahoma. 

Now, on to the ACC. Locally, the 

Tarheels of North Carolina have started 
out impressively. The Tarheels upset Syra- 
cuse last Saturday with a convincing 27- 
10 win. Wake Forest pulled the glass slip- 
per off Northwestern last Saturday. As 
always, beware of all-around powerhouse 
Florida State. After Warrick Dunn and the 
'Noles beat Florida in their annual late- 
season matchup, look for Florida State to 
capture another national title for coach 
Bobby Bowden. 

The SEC represents the best of colle- 
giate football this season. The two main 
contenders are Tennessee and Florida. 
September 2 1 is a key game as the Gators 
square off against the Volunteers. This 
game could determine the winner of the 
SEC. The Gators have the best offense, 
led by quarterback Danny Wuerffel, in 
collegiate football. 

The Big East is yet another conference 
that's up in the air. Many picked Syra- 
cuse early on to win the title, but with an 
early on loss to North Carolina, the 
Orangemen's chances have diminished. 
Virginia Tech and Miami now look to be 

the front-runners. Never underestimate 
the chance of upsets by West Virginia 
or Boston College. 

Finally, we're down to the team that 
you either love or hate: Notre Dame. 
Notre Dame almost was surprised by 
Vanderbilt in week one. The Irish had 
to fight their way to a fourth-quarter 
comeback to squeak by with a win. For 
some reason, though, Notre Dame is still 
ranked in the top 10. I hope that some- 
day poll voters will rank Notre Dame 
with how they play, instead of by their 

The aspect of overtime this year will 
improve collegiate football. Overtime 
will eliminate the heartbreak of losing 
titles to a tie. Also, overtime play should 
step up the performance of the athletes. 

The ' 96-' 97 season should be like a 
box of chocolates: you never know what 
you're going to get. Upsets may be the 
norm. Nebraska, the Big 10 and the 
ACC games will especially be exciting 
to watch. Enjoy the roller coaster of a

Homecoming reunites students and al ums 

Saturday's dance starts at 9 p.m. at Market Square 

By Katherine Hill 

Director of Student Activities 

We are all aware of the impor- 
tance of the "homecoming" for our 
alumni and the mixing of the past 
with the present. But perhaps more 
significant is the fact that home- 
coming isn't just an activity or an 
event, it's a happening. 

Picture the joyful, loud reunions 
between former classmates and 
throngs of cars with a rainbow of 
license plates winding through the 
campus as alumni survey all of the 
changes. Faculty and staff reminisce 
and share stories about the wild an- 
tics of the class of '76. Recent alumni 
track down their friends who are 
current students and make plans for 
one more late night out. 

Everyone will want to see the 

parade of clubs and organizations 
Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Any organi- 
zation wanting to participate should 
contact the director of student ac- 
tivities by Friday. Who knows, your 
club might even win a prize for 
being one of the best entries. 

Homecoming is a happening, 
but it just doesn't "happen." The 
SGA student activities board and 
the homecoming committee, headed 
by Seth Carter, have spent almosi 
two semesters planning and prepar- 
ing for this special weekend. 

But student involvement is only 
half the story. Christine Rollins and

table task of organizing the class 
reunion, luncheons and special 
events for alumni. In the end, alumni

Editor's column gets mixed reviews* 

Humphreys' approach 
leads to academic bulimia 

To the Editor: 

I was pleased to sec your Sept. 1 2 
editorial saying: "Professors should 
teach the subject at hand, not the sub- 
ject of teaching us how to think." It's 
important that our Chronicle speak on 
such subjects. 

Unfortunately, you are a product 
of an educational system which has 
assumed that professors and teachers 
possess a treasury of knowledge which 
they are to impart to passive students. 
Actually, the word "education" is de- 
rived from the Latin root meaning "to 
draw out." Thus, the proper role of 
education is to "draw out" from stu- 
dents rather than to "put in." The type 
of education you arc espousing inevi- 
tably leads to academic bulimia. The 
professor stuffs so much information 
into the student who, in turn, is ex- 
pected to regurgitate the information 
at exam time. Unfortunately, there is 
little or no nourishment; and the stu- 
dent goes away hungry. 

You asked: "What ever happened 
to the Socratic method?" Actually, the 
so-called Socratic method is exactly 
the method you suggested is a waste of 
students' tuition. Socrates never de- 
livered lectures. He asked questions, 
attempting to force his followers to 
think. Data can be delivered hy all 
sorts of systems. The task of the teacher 
is to engage students in the often trou- 
bling task of thinking. 

Thanks for provoking us to think 
through your editorial. 

Earl Crow 
Dean of the Evening Degree Program 

Students, not professors cause 
inappropriate class environment 

To the Editor: 

I must say, as a fellow student, that I do 
agree with Rob Humphreys' Sept. 12 ar- 
ticle ("Professors should teach the subject 
at hand...") to a degree. Many professors do 
spend a lot of time teaching students how to 
think and this wastes valuable class time. 
The problem lies in the fact that many 
students admitted to HPU need to be taught 
how to think. They have not learned it in 
high school, and in order to become pro- 
ductive members of society, they must learn 
what many of us already know. 

I agree that everyone has the right to an 
education, but it is not conducive to a class/ 
lecture environment when students in a 
math class cannot add single digits. I found 
this extremely frustrating but learned that 
as long as this institution insists on being 
the place where these people are allowed to 
earn a degree, then we as a student body 
must deal with it. 

I agree that is frustrating. We should not 
have to deal with people who are totally 
uninterested in educating themselves. That 
is what this school should teach. Not how to 
think but how to learn. If the ability to learn 
was required of every entering student, 
there would be fewer hold-ups in class so 
the rest can do what we are here to do - 

Many of us spend our nights studying. It 
is the few who throw away the opportuni- 
ties that life is giving them that hurt the rest 
of us. Remember this the next time a pro- 
fessor spends too much time on one sub- 
ject, Rob: it is the students in the class 
bringing you down. Not the professor.

and focusing on school work is tough business

Back in the day, when 
I was still in high 
school, I'd occasion- 
ally run into a college senior 
and ask something like, "So, 
now that you're about to 
graduate, what're ya gonna 
do with your life?" 

The answers were as predictable as 
the sun rising. "Well, you know, urn, 
I'm not really sure." 

How stupid, I thought. You've ob- 
viously lacked enough sense to plan for 
the future. When I'm your age, I'll have 
everything all mapped out. 

Four years later and 96 credit hours 
behind me, here I sit wondering what 
lies ahead. Basically, I'm in the same 
predicament as those "irresponsible" 
people who seemed so unsure about 

When some high school kid asks 
me what I'll be doing a year from now, 
I go through the "well, I have a bunch 
of options" routine, then just spill the 
beans and admit, "Look, hud, I don't 

All college seniors can relate. You 
go home for Thanksgiving and Uncle 
Snodgrass looks at you real stern-like 
and wants to know when you're going 
to get a real job and make your first 
million. Everyone has high expecta- 
tions now that you're months away 
from a college degree. 

Its only October and still the pres- "Um..." 

sure mounts as to what is 
more important - taking 
the time to get an 'A' on a 
research paper or sending 
out early resumes. 

Sometimes we get 
complacent in college and 
forget what we're striving 
for - a decent career. We 
get into our routines and 
concentrate more on acing the midterm 
than planning for the future. 

It's hard to find that ideal balance. 
No one wants to bag groceries at 
Food Lion because he didn't take time 
to pursue post-college employment. 
Then again, no one wants a C-minus 
on an exam. 

The future can be a scary place - 
especially when you're answering that 
all-too-familiar question with "I don't 

To one extent or another, we're shel- 
tered in a pretty ideal setting while at 
college. When our four years are up, 
the security blanket is ripped away, and 
we're left to face the proverbial "real 
world." Confronting the unknown 
probably causes the most angst for any 

Of course, everyone's situation is 
different. Some have a job lined up and 
enjoy peace of mind while others don't 
have a clue and get all stressed out. 
Either way, the decision looms. 
Hopefully when Jake hands us that 
diploma and someone asks, "Hey, 
what's next?", we won't have to answer.

New guide to campus life full of questionable regulations 

Fines are three times higher for throwing objects 
out of windows than possessing stolen property 

By Kate Mannion 

* '• Staff Writer 

The office of student life has put out 
a new guide concerning campus life. 
Dean of Students Gart Evans and Amy 
Deuterman, assistant dean of students, 
put the pamphlet together and stated its 
purpose in the introduction. 

The guide is meant to "enable stu- 
dents to quickly become comfortable and 
familiar with community living at High 

Point University." 

Although the intent of the guide is 
to inform students of the various rules 
and regulations on campus, many foTlnd 
themselves questioning the information. 

A fine as high as $75 for throwing 
an object out the window is listed. That 
seems quite a bit of money compared to 
the $25 fine for possession of stolen 
property, a more severe charge in some 
students' eyes. 

One rule states that all smokers 

should have ashtrays. Most resident as- 
sistants cannot regulate this - the stu- 
dents should be the ones concerned about 
living among ashes and cigarette butts. 

A fine of $50 and referral to the dean 
of students are allotted for disrespecting 
a university official. However, how is 
one to know what is considered disre- 
spect and what is not when the decision 
is left up to the RA? 

The rules and regulations of this 
campus are all there for a reason. How- 
ever, if more discussion between the staff 
and students took place rather than au- 
tomatic fines or punishment, relations 

would be better and people would be 

Using the guide as a source of infor- 
mation, many students can become 
aware of the policies that go along with 
living on campus. Living anywhere with 
others has to do with compromise, 
among both the students and the staff. 

If a student finds questions with a 
rule, he or she should communicate with 
the proper authority. A campus directory 
is included in the pamphlet highlighting 
important offices and faculty to contact 
if problems arise. 

Clinton's actions in the Middle East may affect election 

By Jessee Morris 

Staff Writer 

Once again, on all major news networks, the face 
of Saddam Hussein is plastered all over the TV screen. 
His presence graces numerous news publications and 
has been resurrected into public politics in the Ameri- 
can mind. 

President Bill Clinton has deployed U.S. troops and 
military forces to the Persian Gulf to take on Saddam's 
military aggression and ethnic cleansing. 

Unfortunately for the United States and Clinton, 
the Persian Gulf situation is an entirely different ball 
game than it was for George Bush in 1991 . Our Middle 
East allies are no longer following America's lead and 
are questioning the motives and intentions of Clinton. 

The United Stales is limited on the action it is al- 
lowed to take with many air restrictions and a shortage 
of air bases that were not problems for Bush. Our air 
superiority was the key factor in the Gulf War, but this 
time it's questionable. 

The United States is now in position to make a de- 
cisive move against Saddam's forces. So this automati- 
cally presents a question of great magnitude: "What is 
the U.S. doing in the Middle East, and why are Ameri- 
can lives at stake when their hands are tied?" 

However, if America does withdraw from the 
Middle East, it will appear that it has given in to and 
declared apathy toward the actions of Saddam Hussein. 
U.S. withdrawal would lead to a massive political vic- 
tory for Saddam. 

Yet if the Americans do remain in the Middle East, 
it will certainly lead to the demise of friendly relations 
with many Arab nations which already question U.S. 
involvement. There is obviously no clear-cut path for 
the United States to follow here in order to save face 
with the world and also save lives. 

In this election year, the actions of Bill Clinton will 
be carefully watched, exploited and criticized. The fate 
of his re-election could be decided with how well he 
handles the hornets' nest of the Middle East. 

Clinton's action will most definitely carry over into

the next presidential term, regardless of who wins. The

possibility over the next month when elections roll 

Entire educational system designed 
around teaching students how to think 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

In last month's issue, editor Rob 
Humphreys complained that professors 
should not "teach us how to think." He 
went on to say, "If after 18 years you 
don't possess the capacity to reason on 
your own, you shouldn't be in college." 

I think Mr. Humphreys may have 
missed the point of college. We are not 
here for job training - that's what com- 
munity colleges and junior colleges are 
for. The purpose of four-year college is 
to prepare us for the real world (cliched 
but true). And I'm sorry, Mr. Humphreys, 
but that does include "teaching us how 
to think." Indeed, the entire educational 
system is designed around that idea. 

It begins with elementary school, 
where we are taught basic skills in a 
simple, structured environment. Junior 
high or middle school adds advanced 
skills, in a less-structured environment 
which forces us to begin learning respon- 
sibility and organization. By the time we 
reach high school, we (ideally) have 
learned to make our own choices and be 
responsible for our own decisions. We 
begin planning for the future -choosing 
electives, taking advanced classes and 
looking at further education. But the pro- 
cess does not stop there. 

Think about some of the freshman 
and sophomore-level classes the univer- 
sity requires us to take. They're not re- 
quired because the university wants to 
torture us, though I imagine that thought 
has crossed every freshman's mind at one 
time or another. They are designed to 
help us "learn to think." 

Here are some examples: 

• History classes teach us to think 
about the past and how it affects us. As 
someone once said, "How can you know 
where you are going if you don't know 
where you've been?" 

• Human relations, psychology and 
sociology classes teach us to think about 
how we interact with one other. You will 
have to live around and work with other 
people for the rest of your life - it helps 
to have some understanding of hov they 
think and what their actions and reac- 
tions may mean. 

• English composition and oral com- 
munication classes teach us to think 
about how we express ourselves. No 
matter what career you choose, you will, 
at one point or another, need to effec- 
tively express your ideas - in person and 
in writing. 

• And literature classes teach us to 
think about, be aware of, understand and 
lake advantage of great ideas from the 
past. This helps in communication. There 
are many allusions in our language to 
Shakespeare, Bacon and other great writ- 
ers of the past - but you won't "get" them 
unless you understand the references. 

After all, if I had never studied lit- 
erature, I wouldn't be able to support my 
own ideas with these thoughts from 
Francis Bacon (which, I believe, apply 
to women as well as men): 

"Histories make men wise; poets 
witty; the mathematics subtle; natural 
philosophy deep; moral grave; logic and 
rhetoric able to contend. 

"Reading maketh a full man; confer- 
ence a ready man; and writing an exact 

Think about it - that's what college 
is for!

Fineman gives inside info on presidential race 

Newsweek's chief political correspondent dishes out the 
skinny on candidates Bob Dole, Bill Clinton and Ross Perot 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

Howard Fineman, chief political cor- 
respondent for Newsweek magazine, pre- 
dicted the reelection of Democrat Bill 
Clinton in the upcoming presidential race. 

Fineman has worked for Newsweek 
since 1984 and is recognized as one of 
the nation's leading political analysts. 
He addressed students and faculty Sept. 
I I at Hay worth Chapel. 

Fineman summarized his view on 
politics with three rules. First, he said 
that a week is a lifetime in politics. 
Second, everything changes in politics. 
And third, politics is a game of compari- 
son. All three candidates arc subject to 
these rules; however, he thinks Clinton 
will win by a 1 5-poinl margin because of 
his ability to sell himself. 

"Clinton has the gift of empathy." 
Fineman said. The mood of the country 
is not as angry as it was nor as solemn, 
according to Fineman. He pointed out 
the good things Clinton has done in of- 

fice which will ultimately get him re- 
elected. He said the stock market is up, 
the economy is stable and there hasn't 
been any war during his term. 

Fineman said he first met Clinton in 
Kentucky. "He is a very emotional guy," 
Fineman said. He also told the audience 
that Clinton has 15 minutes of expertise 
on everything. "He thinks he is an expert 
on every available subject." 

Fineman admires Republican candi- 
date Bob Dole. "Bob Dole's life is a 
heroic story," according to Fineman, who 
spoke about Dole's World War II inju- 

Fineman said that it was Dole's mili- 
tary experience that made him want to 
lead. However, the big issue in his cam- 
paign, according to Fineman, is Dole's 
age. "He is pre-MTV. He's pre-radio." 

War wounds hospitalized Dole for 
two-and-a-half years. Fineman told High 
Point that Dole memorizes everything 
because, with his damaged arm, he can- 
not lake notes. He won't even sign a 
document on a glass table, because he 


cannot hold the paper. 

"Running for president is not an easy 
thing for him to do," Fineman said. 
"[Dole] hates selling himself. He's just a 
guy who gets things 
done. The problem 
is being president 
isn't just about get- 
ting things done." 

Fineman also 
discussed Ross 
Perot, who is run- 
ning on the inde- 
pendent ticket. He 
called Perot a quit- 
ter and a man who has "no sense of 
humor about himself." 

Fineman views Perot as an angry 

"Perot always thinks he's being 
picked on. ...He touches hot buttons in 
people because he is a human hot button 

Fineman sees no chance of Perot be- 
ing elected, but he identified his main 
function as being someone to take votes 
away from Dole. He said if Perot were 
allowed to participate in the upcoming 
debates, it would take votes away from 

Dole, which is why Clinton wants him to 
be included. 

Concerning the issues, Fineman 
talked about the gender gap between 
Republicans and Democrats. He said 
that the gap is at least 20 points wide. 
While men are split down the middle 
between Democrat and Republican, 
women are 60-40 Democrat. 

"Republicans did not address work- 
ing women very hard at their conven- 
tion," he explained. Also, the abortion 
issue contributes to this gap. 

"Most people get their political 
knowledge from Dave Letterman, Jay 
LenoandConan O'Brien," Fineman said. 

There are issues in this election that 
none of the candidates wants to address, 
like civil rights and devising a truly multi- 
cultural environment. He also said there 
are other issues which appear important 
on the surface, like Whitewater, but re- 
ally aren't. "This election is about much 
deeper things." 

Fineman has covered every congres- 
sional and national election since 1980. 
He said of Americans, "We don't be- 
lieve in leadership anymore. We don't 
believe in leaders."

are interested in continuing their educations. 
To apply for any of the graduate programs or 
to receive more information on the program, 
contact the Office of Graduate Studies in Rob-

The Graduate Admissions Test is required 
for the program, but there is not a minimum 

score that needs to be achieved. 

Graduate students need at least 37 credit 
hours to finish one of the programs. Currently, 
tuition runs $754 per three-credit class. Nine 
credit hours is a typical full load for the 108 
graduate students now enrolled. 

"Each individual needs to think about 
where they want to be down the road," said 
Jason Strack, a '96 alumnus planning to begin 
his graduate career this spring. "It is real easy 
to take the accomplishment of your college 
diploma and be satisfied, but in the long run, it 
may not be enough."

Campus Chronicle 5 

Magazine ranks HPU in top 20 of 
nation's most efficient colleges 

More bang for your buck: 
U.S. News and World Report 
bills High Point as a low-cost, 
quality liberal arts college . 

HPU Press Release 

For the second year in a row, HPU 
has received dual recognition from U.S. 
News and World Report for institutional 
quality and efficiency. 

The Sept. 1 6 edition ranks High Point 
as the second-most efficient regional lib- 
eral arts colleges in the South and as one 
of the 20 most efficient regional liberal 
arts colleges in the nation. 

Efficient colleges are those which 
have achieved quality while keeping 
costs low. The efficiency ranking reflects 
both institutional charges for tuition and 
fees and the amount of dollars awarded 
as financial aid to students. 

Only those regional liberal arts col- 
leges which U.S. News and World Re- 
port ranked among the top tier of re- 
gional liberal arts colleges with regard 
to quality were considered for the effi- 

ciency ranking. In the 1997 edition of 
"America's Best Colleges," a scheduled 
publication of U.S. News and World 
Report, HPU is listed among the top tier 
(25 percent) of the 1 29 Southern regional 
liberal arts colleges. High Point ranks 
No. 15 for quality, up from No. 19 in 

The quality ranking reflects a num- 
ber of variables, including SAT scores, 
percent of freshmen in the top 25 per- 
cent of the class, acceptance rate, con- 
version of accepted students to enrolled 
students, student-to-faculty ratio, educa- 
tional expenditures per full-time equiva- 
lent student, freshman retention rates, 
graduation rates, alumni support and the 
academic reputation of the institution. 

In addition to the ranking of regional 
liberal arts colleges, "America's Best 
Colleges" also ranks national universi- 
ties, national liberal arts colleges and 
regional liberal arts universities. High 
Point is included among regional liberal 
arts colleges because of the number of 
graduate degrees awarded to date. The 
university awarded graduate degrees for 
the first time in 1995.

Black Cultural 
Awareness not 
only for African 

Many times we glance at certain 
titles or names and instinctively judge a 
book by its cover. Unfortunately, when 
we do this, we miss out on several things 
that can be beneficial to us. Black Cul- 
tural Awareness (BCA) faces this pre- 
judgment here on campus. 

Because this organization's name 
contains the word "black," there is a great 
misconception that it excludes those 
whose race is other than African- Ameri- 
can. BCA's presidentt, junior Mikel Fos- 
ter, a sports medicine major, says this is 
far from true. "BCA is not an African- 
American organization only," says Fos- 
ter. "It is a club that promotes black cul- 
tural awareness." 

Its main purpose is to educate stu- 
dents about the culture, beliefs and ad- 
vancement of black Americans. Foster 

envisions many notable accomplish- 
ments for the 1996-97 organization be- 
cause she is assisted by a diverse sup- 
porting cast. 

"The BCA is made up of members 
who have leadership qualities," says 
Foster, "and with the growing number 
of members, it is possible for us to run 

Sophomore Jermaine Beckhom and 
freshman Neil Holmes serve as the co- 
vice presidents. The responsibility of 
secretary belongs to sophomore Tennille 
Leak and her assistant, sophomore Joy 
Rogers. Sophomore LaKiesha Matthews 
serves as treasurer with the aid of junior 
Rosalind Brown. 

While promoting black awareness on 
campus, Foster wants to "facilitate an 
environment where people can come to- 
gether socially, mentally and spiritually 
and better serve the community." That 
is why members volunteer time to tutor 
the youth of the community at the High 
Point YMCA. 

Once again, members will continue 
to help the unfortunate who are subjected 
to homeless shelters, and the BCA will

private industry's role in 
government militarism 

By Kristen Long 

News Editor 

Five students from the evening de- 
gree program at Madison Park held a 
public awareness demonstration on mili- 
tarism at Market Place Mall Saturday. 

Susan LaPraold, Liz Martin, Camie 
Craver, Debra Macbeth and Melissa 
Uolen passed out flyers and spoke with 
shoppers about how the government gives 
money to private corporations to do re- 
search on warfare technology. They 
wanted to make the public aware of 
where its tax money goes. 

"We're trying to plant a seed for 
people to think about. Over three million 
dollars a year is sent to private corpora- 
tions for them to work on finding better 
ways to kill people," Macbeth told one 

The man responded, "Understand my 
point. If I had to chose between a stick or 
a gun, I would chose a gun." 

"How many weapons do we need? 
We have tons of stuff to kill people a

meeting is tonight at 6:30 in the Leeds 
Room of the Slane Campus Center.

Alpha Phi Omega 
completes several 
service projects 

September concluded with several 
successful service projects. First, we're 
very proud of the 16 Alpha Phi Omega 
members who donated blood or volun- 
teered at the blood drive. Other projects 
to end the month were cooking dinner 
at the Open Door Shelter (ODS), work- 
ing at the karate tournament and distrib- 
uting phone books. 

October is shaping up to be an even 
bigger and brighter month for APO. 
Projects planned include Adopt- A- High-

The flyers were printed on bright

Another example that was added was 
the Institute for the Blind in Winston-

Alpha Phi Omega's first pledge in-

first group of pledges is eagerly await- 
ing the opportunity to become our new-

service hours already and are working 
hard on all of their other requirements. 

For those students still interested in 
pledging APO, we will be having another 
pledge induction ceremony very soon, 
and we would love to have you pledge. 

Non-service related events are also 
around the corner. The big brother and 
another pledge induction ceremony will 
give members a chance to get a little for- 
mal. Fellowship events such as bowling, 
attending a hockey game and going trick- 
or-treating will allow the members to 
show their wild sides. 

Finally, we wish everyone good luck 
on their midterms and hope that every- 
one has a fantastic fall break.

Office of counseling devises new treatment program 

Wolf and Bergen create Substance Abuse 
Education, Prevention and Treatment Program 

By Nicole Thompson 

Staff Writer 

The average college student 
consumes 34 gallons of beer, 
wine and liquor a year, accord- 
ing to a June 1994 survey. Col- 
legians spend $5.5 billion on 
alcohol each year, more than on 
their books, coffee, tea, sodas 
and other drinks combined. 

Because substance abuse is 
such a continuing problem ev- 
erywhere, HPU decided to do 
something about it. Administra- 
tors were alarmed by the lethal 
fraternity house fire last spring 
at UNC-Chapel Hill. Substance 
abuse strongly contributed to 
the tragedy. 

The HPU office of counsel- 
ing took charge and started the 
Substance Abuse Education, 
Prevention and Treatment Pro- 
gram this semester to provide a 
structure for addressing the 
problem through counseling. 
Marilyn Wolf, a certified mas- 
ter addictions counselor, and 
David Bergen have designed a 

comprehensive program which 
addresses the challenges of sub- 
stance abuse among college stu- 
dents from the perspectives of 
education, prevention and treat- 

Wolf has been here for eight 
years, and she has seen many 
students experiencing problems 
because of substance abuse, 
whether it be their own abuse 
or abuse by someone they love. 
She says they "won't be reactive 
to the problem but proactive." 

Wolf says that in launching 
this program, she knew there 
would be support from the fac- 
ulty and administration, so she 
involved the faculty. The pro- 
gram includes a task force made 
up of faculty, staff and students 
that work together to prevent 
substance abuse and addiction 
from developing. 

The program has many ser- 
vices including: 

• Substance abuse assess- 
ments, which arc mandatory for 
all students with alcohol- or 
drug-related violations and 

open for any other students re- 

• Individual and group coun- 
seling for students whose as- 
sessments reveal need for on- 
going assistance and open for 
any other student as referred. 

• A substance abuse educa- 
tion seminar that meets once a 
month, which is mandatory for 
all students with alcohol- or 
drug-related violations and 
open for any other student re- 

Many other services are also 

"I wanted to find a more di- 
rect route to the problem of al- 
cohol- and drug-related abuse," 
Wolf said, "and to communicate 
a message to students that if 
substance abuse is a problem in 
their life, we're not going to dis- 
cipline them; we just want to 
provide a safe, confidential 
place for them to go and figure 
out what they need to do." 

This is not a 12-step pro- 
gram, but Al-Anon, Alcoholics 
Anonymous or Narcotics 
Anonymous would be recom- 
mended for students to consider. 

"I believe in those programs

Olympic historian wows chapel crowd 

John Lucas, official lecturer of the 
Games, shared Olympic insights 

By Ashleigh Barbour 

Staff Writer 

United States track star Michael Johnson looked 
like he was running "with some kind of rocket in his 
trousers" at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. 

Those were the words of Dr. John Lucas, the offi- 
cial Olympic lecturer who attended the Games. Lucas 
came to the chapel Sept. 24 to share his many experi- 
ences. He proudly began his lecture by holding up a 
picture of himself in front of the Olympic torch. 

The Olympics in Atlanta were the "first in human 
history" in which every country in the world was rep- 
resented. There were 21 ,000 athletes and trainers from 
197 countries. Lucas said there were at least four mil- 
lion people in Atlanta for the Olympics and also men- 
•tioned the three billion people watching the events on 

Atlanta was not prepared to handle such crowds, 
and Lucas said he will "never forget" the people swarm- 
ing in the streets. 

Lucas was asked what distinguishes the Olympics 

in America from the Games in other countries. He re- 
vealed it was a Coca-Cola Olympic Games because 
the U.S. government has chosen not to support the 
Olympics financially. In other countries, the govern- 
ment supports and allocates the money needed to have 
Olympic Games. 

Lucas also explained the symbolism of the Olym- 
pic flag, which is made out of silk to symbolize the 
conjoining of animal (silk worm) and human (the maker 
of the silk). The flag must be white, a color symboliz- 
ing purity and goodness. Its five different-colored rings 
stand for the five continents. 

Amazingly, every country's flag has at least one 
color represented by the Olympic flag. The rings also 
symbolize that "all the continents and all the people 
are joined together." The Olympics were formed for 
that reason, to have men and women from all five con- 
tinents come to a single nation. 

Lucas had some great advice for young people and 
inspired them with statements like "This country be- 
longs to you" and "You are the hope of the 21st cen- 
tury." He took a serious tone in most of his speech but 
was still able to joke around with the audience. 

Laughter filled the chapel during many instances 
that morning. 


Dr. John Lucas, official lecturer of the Olympic 
Games, spoke to students in the chapel.

Week: Let 
the games 

By Gus Vieira 

Creek Editor 

Once again, we are back for Greek 
Week '96. It is a time when the fraterni- 
ties and sororities pair up with each other 
to showcase numerous talents and acts 
of stupidity. 

Here are the teams for this year: Delia 
SifS and Alpha Gams, Lambda Chis and 
Kappa Deltas, Pikes and Phi Mus and 
Theta Chis and Zetas. It is hard to de- 
cide who will be Greek Week champi- 
ons since drinkers arc very unpredict- 
able. Do not get me wrong, I am not say- 
ing that it is a beer test or that all Greeks 
drink, but some may knock a lew back 
while cheering lor their teams. 

On Sunday it was a ceremonial day 
with a Greek Walk which followed a pic- 
nic in the campus center. Then Monday 
was when the real action started. At 3 
p.m. teams awaited to show their skills 
on the Finch volleyball courts. And at 6 
p.m. teams migrated to the practice field 
to display their learned soccer skills from 
Pcle. Not really, but I did see many tal- 
ents on the field. 

Tuesday's events were cancelled be- 
cause of the rain. But due to creative 
minds, we were able to play basketball 
in the gym at 5:30. This was when teams 
buckled up, and showed emotions as 
those previously demonstrated by Den- 
nis Rodman. 

On Wednesday pool activities were at 
their best. The competition started at 
6:30 with swimming relay races, belly 
Hop and cannon ball contests. 

Today at 3 p.m. there will be a Greek 
Clean-up around the Millis parking lot, 
and around the fraternity houses. Then 
at 9 p.m. a scavenger hunt will be held 
at the campus center. 

On Friday the week ends with the 
most exciting activity: the Lip Sync Con- 
test at 9 p.m. in the cafeteria. 

So, if you have not attended any 
of the events this week, make sure you 
come out on Friday and cheer your teams 
to a dancing victory. Good luck to all 
the teams and have fun.

Campus Chronicle 9 

Feeling Minnesota leaves you feeling numb 

By Heather Sitler 

Stuff Writer 

OK, forany of you reading this who 
heard me brag about the fact that I was 
going to see Feeling Minnesota, go 
ahead and laugh at me. No, really. Get ft 
out of your systems. You will want to 
throw in my face the fact that I spent 
$5.75 of my practically non-existent 
funds to see this poor excuse for a movie. 

Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but 
Keanu Reeves made another bomb. 
(How come I'm not hearing any gasps 
of shock? A Walk in the Clouds wasn't 
that bad.) However, I must admit the 
pairing of Keanu Reeves with Cameron 
Diaz was as brilliant a move as putting 
him with Sandra Bullock in Speed. The 

chemistry these two had on the screen is 
the only thing that held the movie to- 

Oh, yeah, you probably want to know 
the details of why it lacked. ..every thing. 
Well, to start, the plot was just too weird. 
Not even like Pulp Fiction weird, just 
dumb weird. The story takes place in 
Kansas. OK, I just can't get one past you. 
Really, the movie is set in, surprise, Min- 

It starts out with Cameron's charac- 
ter, Freddy, running along the railroad 
tracks in a wedding dress. For the First 
20 minutes of the movie, you have no 
idea why she is trying to run away from 
the guys who grab her, which is pitfall 
number one. Finally, it comes out that 
she was suspected of stealing $10,000 

from this guy named Red. Red's pun- 
ishment for her was to marry one of his 
employees, a white trash jerk, whose 
name escapes me. 

It just so happens that he is Keanu's 
character's brother. So, you can probably 
figure out the rest. No? OK, then let me 
spell it out. Keanu (Jax) comes to the 
wedding, she sees him, he sees her and 
sparks fly. Blah, blah, blah. Right after 
the wedding, she invites him to the bath- 
room, and they do it right there. 

The best line in the whole movie is 
spoken during this scene, but they won't 
let me print it here. It might offend some 
of you, but I doubt it. But it's the best 
line in the movie, and if you want to hear 
it, then you can go waste $5.75 and two 
precious hours. 

The rest of the movie is basically a 
seesaw between sex and violence, some- 
times both at once. Keanu whisks her 
away from her husband and then that's 
where the action begins, I guess. I won't 
tell you the ending just in case you still 
want to see this despite my stellar review. 
Which is good, I wholly encourage that. 
You should never allow the opinions of 
others to dictate your personal decisions. 
So, why are you reading this? 

When it comes down to it, the acting 
was killer, but the plot just. ..wasn't. The 
cast includes Dan Akroyd and Courtney 
Love, who makes an incredible debut 
(one other reason to see this movie. No, 
I'm not a Hole fan, really.). This Hick 
•earns the rating of two and one-eighth 
stars; wait for it to come out on video 

Sandler and Wayans excite Bulletproof audiences 

The two comedians get lots of laughs teaming up as a 
cop and a detective in this juvenile slapstick comedy 

By Don Dunphey 

Special to the Chronicle 

In a fall movie season of gritty dra- 
mas like Trainspotting and dreary action 
flicks like The Crow II , it's a pleasant 
change to see a movie that makes you 
laugh for 90 minutes. And in today's 
cinema, who belter to put in a comedy 
than two big name stars like former 

SNL'er Adam Sandler and In Living 
Color alumnus, Damon Wayans. 

The story of Bulletproof is like many 
other cop-buddy movies, such as 48 
Hours. In Bulletproof , Damon Wayans 
plays a detective assigned to protect a 
thief played by Sandler. The relationship 
starts rocky, but, as the movie progresses, 
the two work together to bring down a 
drug lord, played by James Caan. » 

The only difference between Bullet- 
proof and the other movies before it is 
that this movie is appealing to today's 
audience. Sandler does the same routine 
that won audiences in Billy Madison and 
Happy Gilmore. Furthermore, unlike his 
contemporary, Jim Carrey, his routine 
hasn't worn off on many people — yet. 
Wayans, on the other hand, gets just as 
many laughs as he ever did while play- 
ing a more low key character than he is 
used to, such as Major Payne. 

While viewing this movie, one will 

also find some pleasant surprises that add 
to the enjoyment of watching these two 
comedians team up for the first time. The 
soundtrack to the movie is first-rate, fea- 
turing some well-known rap stars, and 
the action sequences punctuate the 
movie with a level of excitement not 
usually found in a comedy. 

While the basic story may be old and 
some of the developments in the plot il- 
logical. Bulletproof docs provide a good 
amount of juvenile slapstick humor that 
will keep you occupied for two hours. 

First Wives Club: the fall's must-see movie 

Hawn, Keaton and Midler play four 
college friends reunited by a tragedy 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

What do you get when Goldie Hawn, Diane 
Keaton and Bette Midler all step in front of the same 
camera? Simple. The best movie I've seen in a long 

Without a doubt, First Wives Club is the must-see 
movie of this fall. True, many may consider it a chick 
flick, but I think this film has the universal capacity 
to entertain all audiences. 

This is the story of four college friends who pre- 
dictably drift apart after graduation. Twenty years 
later, a tragedy brings three of them back into one 
another's lives. Though they feel awkward at first, 
they soon discover one thing they all have in com- 
mon: their husbands recently divorced them for 

younger women. 

Time to get even. That's when the First Wives Club 
shifts into high gear. The women want their ex- 
hubbies to pay. Figuring out how to make them pay 
leads to some of the most hysterical, clean comedy 

I've seen in quite a while. 

The road of revenge is not always smooth. The 
women experience obstacles and setbacks. When their 
friendship begins to crumple under the stress, they 
need to step back and look within before they can get 
back on track. 

So, are these just a bunch of old, jealous hags? 
Not on your life. Hawn doesn't look a day over 25 
(OK, maybe 30, but who's counting?). Keaton looks 
a bit older, but she still has plenty of sparkle and spunk, 
and Midler sheds a few pounds to look terrific. Their 
characters are genuine and genuinely funny. 

I think the ending will surprise a few of you. It's 
not exactly the nasty, cutthroat conclusion that you 
might expect, so stop wincing, guys. Vengeful women 
aren't really all that bad. 

And, guys, if you think the plot sounds unfair and 
feminist, just imagine how you would feel if the tables 
were turned and your current girlfriend dumped you 
for someone younger, say, Jonathan Taylor Thomas? 
Keep that in mind, and you, too, will be able to ap- 
preciate this movie. 

Go ahead. Splurge. Buy some popcorn and a soda 
and something sweet to cut the salt. Then sit back 
and relax 'cuz this movie's worth every penny. 

NCSF models male monologues 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

Every guy experiencing trouble talking to 
women should see Cyrano de Bergerac to learn 
what to say to a woman he is trying to woo. For 
instance, during the balcony scene, when Cyrano 
is weeping while pleading his love to Roxanne, he 
bemoans his inability to express his love for her: 
"Love hates that game of words! It is a crime to 
fence with life. ..God help those who pass the mo- 
ment by!- when beauty stands... with grave, sweet 
eyes that sicken at pretty words!" 

I'm not trying to say that women fall for insin- 
cere lines all the time, but when one means the 

things one says, words, like those spoken by Cyrano, 
are tools to convey one's feelings. 

The production was virtually flawless. The ac- 
tors covered for the few spontaneous mistakes that 
occurred during the production. I wouldn't have no- 
ticed, but as a reviewer I was looking for flaws. For 
instance, when fake snow from The Winter's Talc, 
another NCSF production, fell from the ceiling, Mark 
Kincaid, Cyrano, moved away from the flakes and 
commanded the audience's attention away from the 
impromptu snowstorm. 

Although I doubted the validity of university's 
decision to pick Cyrano over Twelfth Night for HPU 
Night, I had no doubts when I walked out of the the- 
ater. Thanks a million for the free tickets.

Oasis has a nasty habit of 
disappearing at concert time 

By Jessee Morris 

Staff Writer 

The British arc coming! Correction, 
the British were coming. 

For the third time in less than a year, 
I stood in line at the local Ticketmaster 
outlet with other disgruntled (former) 
Oasis fans, waiting impatiently for a re- 
fund. Those notorious lads had cancelled 
their Atlanta dates on two different oc- 
casions in 1995 and also on the recent 
Charlotte dates - all of which 1 had pro- 
cured tickets for. 

Through all this cancelling and re- 
funding, I only could think of one ques- 
tion I would like to ask the Gallagher 
hoys: "Who do you think you arc?" 

They are not anywhere near other 
great British acts such as the Rolling 
Stones, the Stone Roses and most defi- 
nitely the legendary Beatles. They can 
cut their hair in "moptop fashion" and 
write some cute, catchy tunes, but they 
can never be compared to the likes of 
the aforementioned. 

The Gallagher hoys once propheti- 
cally slated in a popular music periodi- 
cal "If you don't think you're the great- 
est rock'n'roll band in the world, no one 

I agree that self-confidence is a criti- 
cal factor in the cutthroat world of the 

music business, but the greatest respect 
a band should have should not be for 
themselves. It must be for their fans. 

Fans and the individuals who buy 
CDs and concert tickets are the ones who 
make these people superstars, not how 
many drugs the band brags that they use, 
how many fights they get into, how many 
groupies they got pregnant or how loud 
they argue with their bandmates. The 
fans make it happen. 

Seeing as teenagers and college stu- 
dents are the typical target of music me- 
dia propaganda, the question is why are 
we tolerating such childish behavior 
when it's obvious that money is the only 
game being played? 

Whether the band is from the United 
States, the United Kingdom, Canada or 
Madagascar, this immaturity and disre- 
spect should not be tolerated from ego- 
inflated rock deities. There is so much 
music out there to choose from that 
people who treat fans in such a manner 
should be condemned to playing shows 
in rundown truckstops for the rest of their 
careers and the fans should make sure 
of it. 

Remember, music listeners, that you 
get what you pay for. 

The lime and money that you spend 
is yours, so choose wisely on whom and 
what you spend it. 

Alanis brings her Jagged Little Pill to Walnut Creek 

By Courtney Mueller 
Spet ml tit the Chronicle 

In support of her album, Jagged 
Little Pill Alanis Morissette came to 
Raleigh's Walnut Creek Amphitheater 
Sept. 18. 

The youthful and vibrant singer 
filled the amphitheater with energy and 
excitement as the show began. When 
she ran out on stage singing "All I Re- 
ally Want," the crowd went crazy as 
sounds of chanting voices echoed 
through the theater. 

Many of Morissettc's songs that 
made her name known to the nation, 
such as "You Oughta Know" and 
"Ironic," were sung against the back- 
drop of an amazing light show and cre- 
ative photos. 

Morissette also introduced many 

new songs off her new album. One 
awesome new song, "Intimidation," 
roared loud. In addition to her old and 
new songs, Morissette also sang a hit 
off the Grease soundtrack, "There Are 
Worse Things I Could Do." 

With the start of every song, the 
crowd screamed and sang along, know- 
ing every word and every beat. Many 
people came from all around to see the 
2 1 -year-old perform her 2 1 st show. An 
older fan in the crowd announced that 
Morissettc's music is the best remedy 
for any heartbreak. 

This concert was the best I've seen 
in months. 

Morissette combines meaning and 
rhythm in her songs for the listening 
pleasure of all ages. Her new album 
will be coming soon to a music store 
near you.

Better than Ezra electrifies 
frenzied crowd at Ziggy's 

The Louisiana band said it 
has more fun performing in 
smaller places 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

I'm glad I attended the Better Than 
Ezra concert at Ziggy's. Not normally a 
big concert-goer, I was amazed at the 
performance both Better Than Ezra and 
their opener. Satchel, gave. 

A part of the Carved in Stone Tour, 
as dubbed by their label, the concert 
packed Ziggy's to bursting. There was 
barely enough room to stand, and the 
sheer claustrophobia of so many hodies 
packed tightly together was almost over- 
whelming. The show was worth every 
bruise, though. 

Satchel worked the crowd into a 
frenzy for the events to come. Its per- 
formance was the precursor to the ma- 
nia that would electrify the cluh as the 
evening progressed. As the opening act 
wound down, the noise from the audi- 
ence reached decibels that rivaled the 
output from the speakers. 

From the first chord of Better Than 
Ezra's opening song, the crowd was elec- 
tric with excitement. BcHcr Than Ezra 
exuded stage presence and gave the 
throng exactly what it wanted. When the 
group started into the hit "In the Blood," 
the audience went wild and soon began 
singing the lyrics. Needless to say, Bet- 
ter Than Ezra put on one hell of a per- 

Better Than Ezra's bass guitarist 
strikes chords at Ziggy's. 


Afterwards, I was lucky enough to 
get a chance to talk to Kevin Griffin, Tom 
Drummond and Travis McNabb, the 
three gentlemen who make up Better 
Than Ezra. When asked what type of 
show he preferred, bassist Drummond 
said he "enjoyed playing smaller places 
because the audience is closer and it's 
more fun." 

From this performance it is easily 
assumed that every show the band does 
is fun.- Rather than playing straight 
through the songs and running to the 
buses after the show, the group made the 
show interactive and, above all, enter-

Labors of theater technicians 
often go unnoticed by audience 

Techies' in drama put in long 
hours but get little recognition 

By Lauren Petrosino 
Staff Writer 

Too often |n life people give credit 
to only what is before their eyes. 

In the theater especially, the audience 
is only aware of what is presented to it 
and not of the effort that goes into each 
performance. Throughout history, the- 
ater technicians have been denied the 
credit that is due to them. 

The same holds true today. 

A play is started months before the 
first curtain goes up. Designers meet 
with the director and ponder what is nec- 
essary to pull the play off. The director 
must be a person of many hats. He or 
she must be a dreamer, a designer, an 
accountant (often dealing with too small 
a budget), a PR person and a motivator. 
The director begins with the vision and 
relays it to the designers, who make the 
dream a reality. 

Then the crew begins the task of 
building the set. Technicians spend 
months bringing the blueprints to life, 


risking many swollen fingers from 
badly-aimed hammers and too many 
splinters to count. 

The costumers bring the actors into 
the time period through the necessary 
costuming. The prop masters add the 
touches that will bring the audience into 
the director's world. Lighting and sound 
designers create the mood of the show. 
During this time, the actors perfect their 
art, rehearsing and refining their craft. 
"Tech Week" is the point where every- 
thing meshes. Only now is the show 
ready to be performed. It is now a com- 
pleted process. 

What does that mean today? Few 
schools offer a technical degree in the- 
ater. Most have simply a generic degree 
with little tech training. Graduate school 
is an option, but it is difficult to get into. 
Technicians don't fit the stereotypes of 
theater people but do as much work as 
the actors. 

The technicians at High Point Uni- 
versity put in long hours for little recog- 
nition. So, the next time you see a pro- 
duction of the Tower Players, take a long 
look at the crew members and tell them 
it was a job well done.

Atcheson exudes a variety of 
smooth melodies from piano 

By Eugene Liauw 

Staff Writer 

WOW... where do I start? 

On Sept. 25, I heard Mr. Randall 
Atcheson perform in Hayworth Chapel 
for the first time. He was the guest mu- 
sician taking part in the regular worship 
service as part of the special music of 
.the night. Being a musician, I have lis- 
tened to different music artists in con- 
cert or on CD, and, let me say that Mr. 
Atcheson is a must-see. 

He plays the piano without accom- 
paniment, for he provides his own back- 
ground. He plays a variety of music from 
Broadway show tunes to the themes of 
classic movies. His love for music is il- 
lustrated by his foot-stamping during 
performance. By looking at the expres- 
sion on his face, you know that he loves 
what he does. He provides rhythm, depth 
and warmth. 

Mr. Atcheson is not a new face in the 

music world. He has been featured on 
HBO from the Radio City Music Hall. 
He was the first person allowed to pur- 
sue a double major in piano and organ 
at the famed JulliafrJ School of Music in 
New York. In 1 99 1 , he was added to the 
distinguished international roster of 
Steinway Artists. 

After his spectacular performance, it 
was hard for me to decide which of 
Atcheson's CDs to purchase. I decided 
to buy the CD True Love. 

This CD has a collection of songs that 
Atcheson has done at parties, weddings 
and many other concerts. In some cases, 
the song "When I Fall in Love" might 
remind you of your true love. You might 
recognize others from shows like Phan- 
tom of the Opera. 

If you have not heard him play, you 
are missing out. If you ever see any of 
his work in the record store, do not worry 
about the price because you will get your 
money's worth. I know I sure did.

Society still in search of a 
label to classify the '90s 

The slacker decade and 
the gay '90s are two 
popular monikers among 
Generation X'ers 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Movies and other media have long 
given different decades their own 
identity by lumping together styles 
and ideals that were prevalent in so- 
ciety during a given time. 

The '50s were classified by poodle 
skirts, the '60s by flower children, the 
70s by disco and the '80s by money. 
The '90s, however, refuse to be con- 
gealed into one tangible identity and 
leave one to wonder what the decade 
will be referred to in the future. 

Recent maga/.ines have touted the 
90s as the slacker decade, the gay 
'90s as well as other various titles but 
there is no stereotype. 

In the early part of the decade, the 
"Who cares'. ' "attitude permeated the 
cinema as filmmakers sought to cap- 
lure the essence of the '90s. Movies 
like Reality Bite\ and Singles de- 
picted Generation X'ers as apathetic- 

With time, these attitudes have 
changed, and now Hollywood, as 
well as the fashion world, seems to 

have been bitten by the retro-bug. 
Movies based on popular '60s and 
70s shows draw people to the the- 
ater like flies and clothing resembles 
outfits of decades gone by. 

The identity of the '90s is rather 
elusive and the so-called Gcn-X'ers 
have a hard time personalizing it. 

One student stated, "The '90s are 
a collage of the past. It's kind of like 
a puzzle. This decade is like a piece 
from each decade before coming to- 
gether in a mix of identities." 

Another student said, "It's half 
regression, half rebirth. People are 
clinging to the past yet trying to break 

One thing is for certain about the 
'90s, the decade is much more open 
than any other decade. "Make the 
biggest statement you can and make 
it loud," said one individual. "Every- 
thing is loud and open. Beaver is 
dead, "My Three Sons" has a single 
father and the Brady Bunch is dys- 

Many people have many thoughts 
on what the '90s are, but perhaps the 
best idea is "I have no idea. In the 
future maybe, but not now." So, in 
four more years, perhaps the '90s, like 
decades past, will be labeled and 
neatly put in the archives of the brain 
as the "confused decade." 


Don't judge by a book by its cover: 
Smithereens seduces readers with lies 

By Veronda Bryk 

Staff Writer 

I spent a lot of time in bookstores this summer, but I only bought one 
book by an unknown author. Smithereens, by Susan Taylor Chehak, en- 
ticed me with an inviting colorful cover. The back of the book describes 
a story about two young girls dealing with suicide, seduction and mur- 

Eleven dollars poorer and a few hours older, I learned that the de- 
scription was a lie. 

May, at 16, has lived in the same little town all her life. Her parents' 
foster child Frankie, a little older than May, surprises the family with a 
visit. She ends up living with them for a while. May and Frankie become 
inseparable. They have fun together and get into trouble together, from 
frolicking in the pool to following an older man. May becomes a little 
wilder; Frankie doesn't change. 

The situations are set up wejl in the novel. However, they are either 
not fully explained or they end too innocently. The story lacks excite- 
ment. Although Chehak may have wanted to leave some things to the 
imaginations of her readers, she left us with nothing to read. 

Smithereens is basically a young adult novel found in the regular fic- 
tion section. It promises action and suspense but delivers monotonous 
prose. The story would have been excellent if it had followed the sce- 
nario painted on the back cover.

Jane Jensen blends 
frustration, freaky lyrics and 
female authority in her debut 
album, Comic Book Whore. 

Comic Book Whore gives the familiar 
a dreamy and surrealistic sensation 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 


Comic Book Whore, the debut album 
from New York-based artist Jane Jensen, 
tells stories about unresolved conflict and 
frustration as it mixes female authority with 
pop sensibilities and gritty industrial vibes. 

Filled with samples, vocal overdubs and 
atmospheric guitar riffs, the music has a 
dreamy and surrealistic feel. The backbone 
of the album is Jensen's voice, which re- 
calls the attitudes of Tracy Bonham and No 
Doubt's Gwen Stefani. 

"King" is reminiscent of Garbage's 
"Only Happy When it Rains." Though this 
poppy tune does not sound all that origi- 
nal, it is still the most radio-friendly song 
on the disc. Its smooth melody and its easy- 
to-follow groove make this track perfect for 
alternative radio. 

"Superstar" has a cool mellow sound 
that intertwines soft vocals and acoustic 
guitar with haunting industrial thrash. If the 

entire song were acoustic, it would be one 
of the best songs on the CD. The industrial 
thrash or" trash" that is expelled in the cho- 
rus is just silly and pretentious. Ministry is 
the only band that could pull off what Jensen 
tries here. 

My favorite song is "Highway 90." 
Jensen delivers her words with a slacker at- 
titude that made Beck famous, and her lyr- 
ics shine with such catchy self-effacing 
phrases as "Driving Highway 90, I dream 
•about a day in. a comic book store. I didn't 
want to be a groupie, but I guess I am a comic- 
book whore." 

Other highlights on the disc include 
"More Than I Can," "Luv Song" and "Cow- 

Overall, Jensen and co-writer Craig 
Kafton give a solid performance of indus- 
trial pop and breathe out original freaky lyr- 
ics. If you like the bands Garbage and Filter, 
you should have an appetite for Jane 
Jensen's, "Comic Book Whore," due Oct. 22 
on Flip Records. 

R.E.M. produces another hit 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

R.E.M.'s new album New Adventures 
in Hi-Fi is quite possibly its most under- 
stated work ever. That is saying quite a bit 
because the members of R.E.M. seem to 
pride themselves on their "alternative" la- 
bel. Thus, the CD packaging is decidedly 
low-key and drab. 

There is no design whatsoever on the 
CD itself, and the cover art is self-con- 
sciously boring. That superficiality aside, 
R.E.M.'s album proves that the music is the 
most important aspect and not the packag- 

New Adventures in Hi-Fi represents a 
return foi R.E.M. and its lead singer 
Michael Stipe to the lyric merit of Auto- 
matic For the People. Thankfully, Stipe is 
much less abstract on this album and only 
dabbles in his fondnessr*for stream-of- 
conciousness poetry. He also writes some 
absurdly funny verses. In "Be Mine," he 
grovels to a would-be lover, "I wanna be 

your Easter Bunny/ 1 wanna be your Christ- 
mas tree." 

One song, "The Wake-Up Bomb," may 
be the most unabashedly accusatory song of 
recent memory. Seen as a verbal bombing 
of the rock group Oasis, who once opened 
for R.E.M., the song rips into a reckless rock 
anthem. Stipe shouts, "My head's on fire and 
high esteem/ Get drunk and sing along to 
Queen/ Practice my T-Rex moves and make 
the scene/ Carry my dead, bored, been there, 
done that, anything." 

"The Wake-Up Bomb" is quite effective 
working against the backdrop of New Ad- 
ventures In Hi-Fi 's mellow mood and the 
spoken word tracks such as "E-Bow the Let- 

The mood of this CD can best be de- 
scribed as a cross between Monster and Au- 
tomatic for the People. The album begins 
with a morose track "How The West Was 
Won and Where It Got Us" which tells the 
story of a man's bad decision and the conse- 
quences. Stipe sings, "The story was a sad 
one, told many times." 

Laughter abounds in the cafeteria 

By Nancy Mayfield 

Special to the Chronicle 

Whether it's that upcoming test or difficulties finding work, it isn't hard to forget to 
include fun and laughter in your week. However, if you saw Marc Moran Sept. 20, at 9 
p.m. in the cafeteria, you're probably still chuckling. Even the people slipping to the back 
to steal cereal and soda enjoyed the show and also became part of it when Moran caught 
them slipping back out. 

When" he isn't appearing on the "Rosie O'Donnell Show," this comedian is finding 
excitement in everyday things. From the horrors you find in your friend's bathroom to the 
struggles of life at Walmart, Moran uses that light they put on the front of vacuums to see 
the humor we overlook. And if none of these examples touched close enough to home, he 
even tossed us the topic we all know something about — relationships. In fact, after 
describing what it's like to have your heart broken, he found himself sprawled on the 
stage piecing together his watch. This guy literally knows how to bring the house down.

Freshmen play key roles on cross country teams 

Freshmen help women win Pembroke Invitational 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

By winning the Pembroke Invita- 
tional, the women'* cross country team 
has a firm foundation for a strong sea- 
son. This is largely due to the emergence 
of three freshmen. 

Leading the way has been freshman 
Heather Bowers, who has been the top 
Panther finisher in each of the first three 
meets. Her time of 20:20 is the best of 
any runner in the Carol inas- Virginia Ath- 
letic Conference. She finished second 
overall in leading the women to their first 
place finish at Pembroke. 

The women surrounded the Pem- 
broke win with an impressive fourth 
place in the CVAC/ Southern Athletic 
Conference Invitational out of nine 
teams and second place in the Winthrop 
Invitational out of 13 teams. They fin- 
ished second to Eton, their out-of-con- 
ference arch-rivals. 

"Beating them (Elon) would be a con- 
fidence boost," co-captain Geisa 
O'Reilly said. While it would have no 
effect on the outcome of the conference 

race, it would mean a lot if both teams 
are able to get to the regional meet. 

The other two freshmen, Katie Pow- 
ers and Mindy Cox, have also contrib- 
uted to the ladies' progress. Combined, 
the three freshmen hold three of the four 
best times on the team. 

While the freshmen have immedi- 
ately contributed and posted good times, 
they are in no way leaving the veterans 
behind. On the contrary, the veteran run- 
ners have been right there with the fresh- 

Through the first three races, the 
freshmen and the co-captains, Melissa 
Lansberg and O'Reilly, have posted half 
of the 10 best CVAC times this year. 

Also, it seems the injury bug has fi- 
nally left the women alone, and only 
small nagging injuries remain. In their 
last meet, all eight runners were healthy 
enough to run for the first time this year. 
That will only help the team's depth and 
make the runners more competitive 
when they face some stronger Division 
II teams. "The way it looks now, we'll 
just keep getting better and better," said 

Duggan, Hildreth have top two times in 
CVAC; Davidson says freshmen will improve 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

The men's cross country team has 
started slowly, but the runners hope that 
as the season progresses and experience 
is gained, the times will get better. 

David Duggan and Shon Hildreth 
have led the men thus far. Duggan has 
the best time so far for the men in the 
CVAC and Hildreth has the second best 

The men finished third in the CVAC/ 
SAC Invitational, second at the Pem- 
broke Invitational and fifth in the 
Winthrop Invitational. While this perfor- 
mance does not sound bad, it's a drop- 
off from last year 

This drop-off is, in part, due to the 
loss of two key runners and the lack of 
experience with three freshmen. The 
freshmen need to do well for the men 
because of the lack of runners and the 
departure of key runners from last year. 
Coach Bob Davidson believes that as the 

season moves along, the freshmen will 
begin to step up their performances. 

Of the three freshmen, Kenji Dorsey 
has put up the best time so far with Mark 
Klamarus' best time just nine seconds 
slower. The other freshman is Ron 

Besides Duggan and Hildreth, the 
Panther veterans Keith Corbett and 
Christian Kell are producing good ef- 

Out of 118 runners in the CVAC, 
High Point has seven of the top 20 :un- 
ners. However, compared with other 
Division II schools, the times are not that 
good. That will show up at regionals, 
says Duggan. "Our lack of depth will 
show up against better competition." 

The team is hoping, as the season 
moves on, that the freshmen will gain 
more experience in order to help put the 
team in the best possible position to de- 
fend its conference championship and 
improve on last year's showing at

Women's soccer team beats Queens, 3-2 

From stuff reports 

The women's soccer team is now 5-5 with a 
4-2 CVAC record. 

The women beat Lees McCrae 3-1 Mon- 
day after losing to Belmont Abbey Sept. 26. 

However, the highlight of the season to date 
was the team's win over Queens College 3-2. 
Coach Heather Puckctt said, "We want to fo- 
cus on the CVAC Tournament. We beat Queens, 
who won last year." 

The women have also beaten Longwood I - 
0, Lenoir Rhync 1-0. Mount Olive 2-0 and St. 
Andrews 6-4. The Panthers' first three losses 

were suffered to Wingate 6-3, Catawba 5-0 and 
Eton 3-0. Coach Puckett said, "We know how 
to win against conference teams; we just have 
to learn to adapt." 

Iris Eysteinsdottir is the Panthers' top scorer 
with six goals and 14 points. Puckett says, 
"There is no focal person. Everyone is step- 
ping up when needed. For instance, Marie 
Wilson has done a good job of controlling the 
middle, and Jennifer Killoch blocked many 
shots against Queens." 

The Panthers' next home game is against 
Barton Oct. 5 at 3:30.

Men's soccer struggles, 
tries to build confidence 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports Editor 

Despite a winning pre-season, 
strong play against Division I schools 
and talented players, the men's soccer 
team is struggling against a downward 

The main prohlem for the 3-8-0 
team stems from a lack of confidence. 
Due to the Panthers' youth and inexperi- 
ence, they have not heen able to achieve 
the one thing that will build their falter- 
ing confidence: winning. As a result, the 
confidence level slips farther with ev- 
ery loss. However, the team has not been 
blown out of any games. 

According to coach Woody Gibson, 
the team had the opportunity to win ev- 
ery game this season. "It's a mindset," 
he said. "Players' ability levels don't 
change in the middle of the game. They 

no longer play to win; they play not to 
lose. They're a good team, they just don't 
believe that they are." 

Gibson said the mistakes are men- 
tal and should be able to be corrected 
through playing together. While some 
players have let old habits die, others 
have not. The outcome of games has also 
been affected by unlucky breaks. 

Every player has worked hard, and 
not without results. In games at home 
against Lenoir-Rhyne, Queens, 
Longwood and Belmont-Abbcy, High 
Point was leading at some point in the 

The team will work on channeling 
its frustrations into something positive 
as inexperience changes to experience. 
However, due to their determination and 
teamwork, Gibson feels the team will be 
competitive in the conference tourna-

Dedication pays off for Hiatrides 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports Editor 

"Since the first time I was walk- 
ing, I was thinking about soccer," said 
Pete Hiatrides. 

Hard work, determination and no 
guarantees all describe Hiatrides in his 
last four seasons on the men's soccer 

Hiatrides, a senior from Long Val- 
ley, N.J., came to the HPU soccer pro- 
gram after nearly a lifetime of playing 
the game. He has played competitively 
since he was four but was playing on his 
own before that. "My life has always re- 
volved around soccer," he said. ' 

For college, Hiatrides looked at 
schools that "had everything to offer," 
concerning soccer. Even before attend- 
ing High Point, his record was impres- 
sive. He was named all-state, all-county 
and all-conference his senior year. He 
pondered a variety of Division I schools 
but looked no farther after his third col- 
lege visit. He fell in love with this cam- 
pus and the friendly atmosphere here. 
Though he had no guaranteed starting 
position, he knew that he could play on 
the team. 

However, it's not something that has 
come easily. As a freshman, nothing was 
ever just handed to him; everything that 
he has gotten from soccer has resulted 
from his dedication to the sport. As a 
freshman, he never would have believed 
that he would be the team captain his 
senior year. 

As the only senior on the team, he 
takes his leadership role seriously. 
Though the team has struggled the last 
two seasons, Hiatrides remains optimis- 


Pete Hiatrides pauses during a 
stop in action against Longwood. 

tic. The entire team has worked as hard 
as he has. He says many of its struggles 
have been due to bad luck. 

He views the possible move to Divi- 
sion I as a good thing. However, the tran- 
sition will be rough. The team should not 
be expected to compete at this level im- 
mediately. This coincides with his be- 
lief that "things don't just come to you

Yankees and 
Dodgers will 
play in Series 

By Todd "Red" Messner 

Staff Writer 

It's that time of year again, and, man, is it ex- 
citing. Major League Baseball is weeding out the 
best of the best in the playoffs to get the two teams 
who will battle for the World Series. 

Everyone, including me, has a favorite team, 
which makes it hard for me to admit this. I have 
to give credit where credit is due— to the New 
York Yankees. They have led the American 
League East since May, and throughout the sea- 
son, they battled an awful attack of injuries. Sep- 
tember rolled around, and their lead thinned, but 
they sucked it up and won the big games when 
they necdciilo 

They tried to pull a Boston Red Sox move 
and choke, but Baltimore came to town, and they 
spanked them hack to Camden Yards, leaving the 
Birds in search of a wild card. The Orioles got it, 
but I don't know if they can get over New York 
heating them all season. 

Don't worry, I know we are in the South, and 
everyone is gaga over the Atlanta Braves. The 
Bravos are tough, but what happened to them 
down the stretch? Sure, they won the NL East 
hands down, but losing the majority of the games 
in September has to get you a little nervous. The 
Braves definitely have the best competition in the 
league, but the competition is getting better. 

This is a very hard playoff to predict, but, if I 
had to, I'd look for New York and Los Angeles 
in the Series. 1 think Baltimore and Atlanta will 
be right there to challenge, though. Whichever 
team makes it. look for your champion to come 
out of the AL. 

Aside from who is playing. I have an idea lor 
the playoffs. How about banning the Macau-n i 
from all the stadiums? If you go to a dance club? 
knock yourself out, but the last thing I need to 
sec is 60,000 people butchering a bad dance when 
it's one to one in the bottom of the seventh. Just 
play Take Me Out to the Bali Game," and lei 
tli,' fans go get one more beer before you cut them 
nil ai the end of the seventh.

Avello captures Rolex tournament 

The fun-loving freshman has pummelled opponents en route 
to becoming High Point's top-seeded women's tennis player 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

Don't let her easy-going personality 
fool you. When Andrea Avello walks 
onto a tennis court, she is all business. 

The freshman made that evident by 
winning the Division II regional bracket 
of the Rolex Tennis Tournament Oct 
ober 7. Last weekend she battled the 
winners from seven other brackets for 
the national Rolex championship but lost 
in the first round. 

Despite the early departure, Avello 
has quickly become High Point's top- 
seeded women's tennis player. 

The competitors and spectators who 
run into Avello off the court would not 
imagine she was one of the challengers 
for the championship. It is not that she 
doesn't look the part, but her demeanor 
is anything but a typical athlete's of 
"destroy your opponent." Instead, it is 
more along the lines of "Hey, let's have 
some fun!" 

It is easy to see her love of the game 
is sincere. She has the desire found in 
young kids just starting to play — the 
love and zest to be on the court and play 
for fun. 

See AVELLO, pg. 4 


Andrea Avello has made a quick 
transition to college tennis.

McGovern speaks on the dangers of alcoholism 

By Kristen Long 

News Editor 

Former U.S. Senator George 
McGovern visited campus Tuesday and 
spoke about alcoholism as a fatal dis- 
ease which killed one of his daughters. 

McGovern's daughter, Teresa Jane 
(Terry), died Dec. 13, 1994 after collaps- 
ing into a snowbank and freezing to 
death, because she was intoxicated. "One 
thing that I learned from Terry's death is 
that alcoholism is a disease," he said. 
"Alcoholics are sick with a desperate, 
fatal disease on their hands." 

His daughter was a well-known ad- 
vocate for McGovern, the Democratic 
candidate in the 1972 presidential elec- 

tion. Since her 

death, McGovern 

has published a 

book entitled 

Terry: My 

Daughter's Life- 


Struggle With Al- 

After visiting George 
over 1,200 col- McGovern 
leges, McGovern expressed his concern 
with binge drinking. "Young people 
think they are invulnerable and immor- 
tal," he said. He urges all universities, 
families, communities and police offic- 
ers to enforce the legal drinking. 

Although the voting age is 18, 

McGovern stands tough on 21 as the 
drinking age. He said, "It is wise to vote 
at 18, but even wiser to vote if you're 
not an alcoholic." 

He said there is no such thing as mod- 
erate drinking to alcoholics. "About 10- 
1 5 percent of people are born with a ge- 
netic vulnerability to alcohol." By drink- 
ing at an early age, people increase their 
chances of becoming alcoholics, 
McGovern said. 

McGovern is using his political skill 
to push for more federal funding on al- 
coholism research. 

He said, "In 1995, $5 billion was 
spent on research for heart disease, can- 
cer and AIDS while only half-a-billion 
was spent on alcoholism." 

School has plenty of 
events to keep parents 
busy this weekend 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

Most students consider Family 
Weekend to he a time for showing par- 
ents what hie is like at High Point Mm 
■ m si ty, away from the comforts of home- 
cooked meals and a personal bathroom. 
The Student Government Associa- 
tion, along with the faculty and admin- 
istration, has planned a number of events 
to make this weekend more than a brief 
tour of campus and a trip to Wal-Mart. 
Family Weekend is not just for those 
students whose parents are visiting our 
campus. The activities are designed to 
be enjoyable for all students, even if their 
parents aren't here for some or all of the 

"I have always thought of Family 
Weekend as a student activity, like home- 
coming or a basketball game," said Dr. 
Morris Wray, vice president of internal 

The Tower Players' production of 
Oliver, which runs from today until Sat- 
urday beginning at K p.m., is the 
university's biggest play ever. 

Other events include the President's 
Breakfast Saturday and coffee and des- 
serts in the cafeteria. The breakfast gives 
parents the opportunity to meet a 
student's professors and is complimen- 
tary for both students and parents. 

Coffee and desserts follow Oliver on 
Saturday. Students without visiting fam- 
ily are encouraged to attend the event and 
meet other families. 

Fraternities and sororities will host 
open houses for family members Satur- 
day from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Houses and 
lounges will hold separate events for 
each organization. 

The men's soccer team will play a 
home game against Coker at 1 :30 Satur- 
day afternoon. The volleyball team and 
the women's soccer team both compete 
this weekend at away schools.

Students spend most Market money 
on more essential things than beer 

Last year's News & Record 
article portrayed students in 
the wrong light 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

The annual fall Furniture Market is 
an ideal job opportunity for High Point 
University students. It coincides with 
fall break. The hours are long and hard 
but generally pay well. Sometimes, it's 
even tax-free. 

All of us can use a little extra cash, 
and many of us depend on the Furniture 
Market for a guaranteed sum of money 
to carry us through Christmas, next se- 
mester and maybe even until the sum- 
mer. Market also gives home furnish- 
ings and interior design majors experi- 
ence in their field. 

Last April, during spring Market, the 
Greensboro News & Record printed an 
article which contained a stereotypical 
quote from an HPU student. Generally, it 
made students who worked Market sound 
like we were all going to spend our hard- 
earned money on beer. Like we have 
nothing better to do with a couple hun- 
dred dollars than spend it getting drunk! 

I have a sneaking suspicion that the 
quote was taken out of context and that 
the student was being somewhat face- 
tious anyway. That isn't what really both- 
ered me and the many other High Point 
students who were offended by the ar- 


Those of us who are involved with 
the Furniture Market know how hard we 
work to earn our money. That Market 
check allows us to do things like eat, pay 
rent, buy Christmas presents and pay 
bills. And if we decide to spend $5 on a 
six-pack of good beer, then we can in- 
clude alcohol in that lump sum. ..if we're 
being so picky that we HAVE to include 
(hat in the spending total. 

This year's News & Record Market 
coverage, from what I've read, has not 
contained any more ridiculous accusa- 
tions against our students. Maybe that 
reporter actually researched his articles 
and discovered that yes, college students 
have budgets just like people out in the 
"real" world. It's doubtful that he went to 
all this work, though. A few letters to the 
editor probably alerted him to how bo- 
gus his claims were. 

Since Market just ended, I wanted to 
remind our campus that stereotypes pre- 
cede us no matter what we're doing in 
the Triad. In order tochange the opinions 
others have of us, we should let them 
know that we arc not the lazy Generation 
X'ers that everyone perceives us to be. 

Working around classes, papers and 
other part-time jobs makes Market a 
long. hard, stressful week for our stu- 
dents. I think it's lime we all stand up for 
ourselves and prove that we work just as 
hard, if not harder, than anyone else in 
this area. 

Way to 

Students owe the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity a big "thank 
you." The SigS recently donated an extra ton of sand to the 
beach volleyball court. That was an unselfish act of charity, 
which the school should have handled long ago. HPU 
vollcyhallers everywhere salute you. Way to go, fellas!

Local candidates impart wisdom during Young 
Republicans meeting - too bad no one showed 

Rob Humphreys 



ith so much fo- 
cus on the up- 
coming presi- 
dential election, I thought it 
time to shift gears and dis- 
cuss what's happening here 
on the local level. 

Last Thursday the Young Republi- 
cans sponsored a discussion featuring 
a few area candidates in the Campus 
Center's Leeds Room. Unfortunately, 
a less-than capacity crowd of 15 stu- 
dents, parents and elementary 
schoolers decided to show up. 

Despite the attendance, the candi- 
dates (two state legislators and a state 
district court judge) communicated a 
good bit of information. 

• John Blust, an incumbent Repub- 
lican senator from District 32, started 
the evening with a lengthy discussion 
on tax relief and making government 
more efficient. 

"Government needs to become 
more like a business by allowing more 
competitors," Blust said. "Most of 
what it does is a monopoly. You can't 
go anywhere else or have any incen- 
tive, because the government runs all 
the programs. There's got to be more 
incentives to keep costs low." 

Blust said the government's high- 
est responsibility is "to act with a sense 
of honor and integrity befitting the of- 
fice to earn back the trust in govern- 

ment." Responsibility No. 2 
is "to be a wise steward of 
tax dollars." 

• Representative Steve 
Wood, up f< his sixth term 
in the North Carolina 
House, is the District 27 rep- 
resentative for High Point. 
Ironically, his opponent is 
former HPU political sci- 
ence professor Tim Millmore. 

Wood, a Republican, chairs the 
House Education Committee and spon- 
sored the recent Charter School Bill. 
He wants more tax relief for individu- 
als and corporations and has fought to 
end social promotion - the idea that a 
student should be promoted regardless 
of competency or grades - in public 

• The final candidate, judge Sherry 
Alloway, dropped in impromptu-fash- 
ion when she saw a sign for the meet- 
ing while driving on Eastchester Drive. 
Alloway, who was recently featured on 
the cover of Guilford Woman maga- 
zine, gave insights into the judicial pro- 
cess but could not promote herself since 
the code of judicial responsibility for- 
bids it. 

All three speakers seemed to be 
spiritually-oriented people with reason- 
able approaches to government. What 
impressed me was approachability and 
willingness to level with students. 

In an era of distrust, it's refreshing 
to see this kind of positive interaction 
between students and candidates.

Choosing Dole 
remains the 
obvious choice 

By Zach Johnston 

Special to the Chronicle 

Election day is right around the cor- 
ner, and, regrettably, Americans still 
have not realized the injustice involved 
with re-electing Bill Clinton. Bob Dole 
has recently pled with the country to 
"Wake Up." I sympathize and often find 
myself baffled by my fellow Americans' 
failure to open their eyes." 

Bob Dole is the hard-working, civi- 
lized leader we need. His previous mili- 
tary experience and Senate service is 
commendable. Dole's moderately con- 
servative attitude and ideas about gov- 
ernment downsizing are what we need. 
Less governmental waste is the answer 
to the problem. 

Clinton has successfully stalled 
through his four-year term, reluctantly 
endorsing borrowed Republican domes- 
tic policies. The president's foreign 
policy, a Dole strong point, has also been 
an atrocity. Clinton has upheld America's 
reckless military behavior with a trial- 
and-error diplomacy by intervening in 
domestic disputes and hastily destroy- 
ing foreign targets. 

Despite these flaws, the Clinton 
administration's major failure has been 
its conduct. The alleged suicide of a 
high-ranking Clinton official did not 
alarm the American public. Clinton's 
further involvement with Whitewater 
and his association with two convicted 


felons merely evoked a response by sup- 
porters that character is not a presiden- 
tial issue. So, after these pardons by the 
American public, it did not surprise me 
when the Clinton administration rifled 
through classified F.B.I, files with no re- 
percussions and shrugged off an allega- 
tion of sexual misconduct on the 
president's behalf. 

This is a recipe for disaster. 

Electing Bob Dole would force 
Americans to think and make character 
judgments, practices many people no 
longer associate with politics. 

Americans need to analyze the cur- 
rent government and make character 
judgments. It is unfortunate that so many 
people are disillusioned, believing 
Clinton is the best candidate for the 
presidency. Bob Dole is more qualified 
and dedicated to running this country, 
and his lack of support can be attributed 
to Americans' not realizing the danger 
involved with the re-election of Clinton. 

Elect the candidate who can elimi- 
nate our massive government and not at- 
tempt to employ half our country. The 
choice is clear: Vote for Bob Dole. 

Make your vote mean something 

Strive to understand the 
issues and what each 
candidate stands for 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

"Do you know who you're going to 
vote for?" I asked John, my best friend, 
several weeks ago. 

He looked nervous. "No. I ' m not even 
sure I want to vote." 

"Thai's OK," I said. "I didn't vote in 
my first presidential election, either. I 
was too busy trying to adjust to college; 
I didn't feel I had time to get informed." 

1 wanted my vote to mean something, 
especially to me. So I didn't vote four 
years ago. In fact, I didn't even register 
to vote until 1994, when my town had an 
alcohol referendum. Now there was an 
issue I was familiar with and felt strongly 
about. So I registered, voted and felt 

I've never missed an election since 
except for the presidential primary this 
spring. A virus forced me to stay home. 
But I knew whom I would have voted 

I know whom I'll vote for next week, 
too. I'm informed this time. I know the 
issues that are important to me and where 
the candidates stand on them. And I 
know what impresses me and what 

For example, I've grown disgusted 
with Clinton and Gore using the same 
lines of rhetoric over and over. If I hear 
"blow a hole in the deficit" one more 
time...! Clinton threw it at Dole in the 
first presidential debate. Gore used it 

three times in 20 minutes during the 
vice-presidential debate. I didn't even 
bother watching the second presidential 
debate. But I walked through the living 
room while Dad had it on - and I heard 
Clinton fire the phrase at Dole again. 

That did it. I stopped and pointed out 
to Dad that the phrase doesn't even make 
sense. The first time I heard Clinton use 
it, I thought for a moment that he was 
suggesting that his opposition was going 
to decrease the deficit - sort of like a 
married couple getting a windfall and 
putting it toward their mortgage, saying, 
"This should take a chunk out of that 
debt we owe." 

I realize Clinton is trying to suggest 
that Dole's econonomic plan would in- 
crease the deficit. However, the deficit 
is, in itself, a gaping hole in the budget. 
How on earth do you blow a hole in a 
hole? It's like firing a bullet through the 
center of a doughnut. 

In contrast, I have heard very little 
rhetoric from Dole and Kemp. And I 
respect them for saying they support 
"Judeo-Christian values." That's not a 
popular stance to take. But it's one I 
support and believe in. 

So I' ve made up my mind. And so has 
John. "I know who I'm going to vote 
for," he said after the vice-presidential 

"Who ? And why?" I asked. 

"Dole and Kemp," he said. "Because 
what they say makes sense.'* 

So does informed voting. Voting may 
be a right, but I treat it as a privilege. I 
don't vote for the sake of voting; I vote 
because I believe in something. 

Why are you voting? 

Economy grows 
under Clinton, will 
suffer under Dole 

By Suzanne Suggs 

Special to the Chronicle 

Those of you who say four years of 
Clinton is enough must have forgotten 
the '80s completely. The high interest 
and unemployment rates are what most 
Americans had to endure under 1 2 years 
of Republican rule. 

The Republicans' biggest issue with 
Clinton is the "character issue," mostly 
because they have very few issues to 
bring up involving his leadership skills. 
Voters, please take a look at the interest 
rate or our thriving economy. Bill Clinton 
is also looking at ways to reform our 
welfare system, a reform that is fair to 
taxpayers as well as recipients. 

President Clinton also started 
Americorps, an organization to help col- 
lege students pay off loans by contribut- 
ing to the community - loans that were 
severely cut during the Reaganomics 
era. Remember the '80s, a time when the 
middle class was forgotten, and big busi- 
ness was rewarded by the Republican 

Bob Dole has nothing to offer anyone 
our age. He wants to make a bridge to the 
past. Whose past? Certainly not mine. 
Bill Clinton turned 50 this year; Bob 
Dole turned 50 in 1973. 

Bob Dole is too old and out of touch 
with issues that matter to me. Bob Dole 
is not concerned with loans for college 
students or education; he is a career 

politician involved with boosting big 
business. His main concern is the retired 
Americans, not the working Americans. 

Finally, the character issue is not an 
issue. The president was elected to per- 
form a job, and he's doing it well; his 
personal life has nothing to do with his 
job performance. 

Furthermore, Americans did not elect 
Hillary Clinton as president; her former 
business practices should not be an is- 
sue. If Mrs. Clinton has done something 
illegal, she should be held responsible, 
but there are no facts indicating she did. 
Bill Clinton wants change for this coun- 
try. Bob Dole wants to take us back to the 
stagnation of the Reagan and Bush era. 

The most important thing to remem- 
ber about this year's election is that you, 
the voter, make the decision. Get out and 
vote. It is not only your right; it is also 
your responsibility. 

Do not vote for a man who will make 
big business bigger, the rich richer and 
the working person and our generation 
unrepresented. Vote for Bill Clinton, a 
man who is working for change and 
working for our generation.

Hanchey compiles CD while interning at record label 

Hanchey works in her spare time helping compile 
Deep Volume //which should appear in January 

By Nicole Thompson 

Staff Writer 

When Lori Hanchey metasmall band, 
Hootie and the Blowfish, and its man- 
ager four years ago, she never knew what 
she was getting into. 

Rusty Harmon, Hootie's manager and 
president of Breaking Reeords, intro- 
duced her to the music industry. He is 
one person Hanchey really admires. 

"He has basically taught me every- 
thing I know," Hanchey said. "He's al- 
ways there to give me advice. I see him 
as my mentor. My goal is to be able to 
accomplish as much as he has." 

Harmon convinced Hanchey to be an 
intern this summer in Raleigh with a 
record label named Deep South Records. 
She has also spent time with a manage- 

ment company called Romar Entertain- 
ment and EMI Records in New York. 

Hanchey has seen the whole process 
of no-name bands becoming household 
names, and it has intrigued her to stay in 
the record business. "I decided I wanted 
to help someone accomplish their 
dreams," she said. 

While at Deep South Records, she 
helped put together a compilation CD 
titled Deep Volume and marketed it to 
major labels across the country. She trav- 
eled with the bands featured on the CD 
and also did many publicity activities, 
such as sending out flyers and calling 
radio stations to promote the bands. 

Deep Volume contains songs from 
artists the company believes have the 
potential to be signed to a major label 
and "make it big within the next year or 


Lori Hanchey, CD promoter 

two." Such artists and groups that the 
company has helped include: Mary Sun- 
shine, 981 1 and the Hazies. The com- 
pany also managed Jeff Carroll and the 

While promoting Deep Volume, 
Hanchey went to New York, Tampa, 

Fla. and Sacramento, Calif., and toured 
in the Carolinas. The tour started in 
Wilmington, went to Myrtle Beach, then 
Greenville and ended up in Columbia. 

Hanchey still works in her free time 
with the internship and says Deep South 
is searching for bands for the next Deep 
Volume CD, which should be hitting 
shelves in January. 

When Hanchey was asked what the 
downside of her experience was, she 
said, "It was a very selective, cutthroat 
industry. There was a lot of work in- 
volved and a lot of patience is required." 

"There are a lot of ups and downs," 
she added. "You have to take the good 
and the bad because some people will 
hate what they hear and others will love 
it. You have to be persistent." 

On the positive side, Hanchey met a 
lot of good friends, made great contacts, 
got to travel a lot and got a couple of job 
offers. "Just the experience was good 
enough for me," she said. 

Family plays key role in Avello's tennis development 

AVELLO, ========== 

continued from front page 

When asked how she views the spring 
season, she answered, "I don't know, I 
just want to play. I never expected to do 
this well. I'm just happy to be where I 
am. I'm nervous for the spring season but 
anxious too." 

Avello may be caught off guard by 
how well she is doing, but success is 
nothing new. The Orlando, Fla. native 
helped lead her high school team to the 
state tournament the last three years, 

including team finishes of second place 
in her sophomore and senior years. 

When she looks ahead to the spring 
season, she does not see things being a 
lot different than high school. Besides 
tougher competition, the biggest differ- 
ence is longer travel distances to play. 

As for her game, Avello knows she 
needs to improve her play at the net. If 
she had her druthers, she'd prefer to stay 
on the baseline and pound it out. 

"I have no net game," she said. "I'm 
not afraid to come in, but my volleys 
aren't that good."

Avello's parents played the greatest 
role her in her being exposed to tennis at 
a young age. "My entire family plays 
tennis, my aunts, my uncles, everybody," 
she said. "I used to always be into piano, 
dance and everything like that. I would 
play tennis, but it wasn't anything ma- 

Avello recalls when she began play- 
ing competitively in the sixth grade. 

"I was talking to this lady at a tourna- 
ment, and she was just talking about how 
her daughter was playing college tennis 
and how much fun she was having. She 


Alpha Phi Omega 
service projects aid 
lives of others 

The members of Alpha Phi Omega 
have recently teamed up with other cam- 
pus organizations to complete some wor- 
thy service projects. 

First, we helped Alpha Delta Thcta 
with a canned food drive where we do- 
nated over $50 of food. Next, we assisted 
Model UN with its mock presidential 
election, helping to keep things running 
smoothly for three days. 

We also completed two projects as- 
sociated with Halloween. First, on Oct. 
25, we worked at a YMCA Halloween 
party and carnival. Our members worked 
at the various game booths and took kids 
trick-or-lreating. Second, our lounge has 
been transformed into a Halloween car- 
nival of our own for area kids. 

One special service project we are 
proud of is sponsoring a needy child. 
He's a four-year-old named Rufino who 
lives in Chile with his parents, three sis- 
ters and a brother. 

Our sponsoring goes toward feeding 
and clothing him as well as providing 
his family with the necessities for life. 
We believe if we can help out one child 
in need, then not only has Rufino ben- 
efited, but those who come in contact 
with him as well. 

APO's fall pledge class consists of: 
Justin Asbell, Kathy Castor, Chris Free- 
man, Adam Knight, Burton Martin Jr. 
and Sarah Ragsdale. All of them show 
extreme interest. 

Brian Davis and Jen Pahner 

said it was something to do and it kept 
her busy and all that stuff. And I was like, 
'Wow.' After that I started playing and 
have been playing ever since." 

Avello's goal in the classroom is to 
major in exercise science and use it to- 
ward a career in physical therapy. As for 
her goal on the tennis court, "F vc always 
wanted to play college tennis. That has 
always been my thing." 

Avello's young college tennis career 
is going very well. She should go on to 
win many matches and maybe even a 
title. Whatever the case, as long as she 
continues to play tennis, she will be as 
happy as can be.

Campus Chronicle 5 

Thompson's service to others pays personal dividends 

The SGA president has sculpted his life around lending a helping hand 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

Senior Will Thompson is not only Student Gov- 
ernment Association president, he is a vast community 
contributor, here and at home. This Eagle Scout is the 
son of a Methodist minister and a school teacher. 

Thompson began his major humanitarian efforts 
during the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo in 1989. He 
helped clean up and rebuild the destruction in and 
around Charleston, S.C. He began this mission work 
through his active youth group, which was lead by his 
father. He returns to the Charleston area regularly to 
help some of the people he has met over the seven years 
he's been doing mission work. 

"I feel very lucky to be in the situation to be able to 
help others, and I wish that everyone on this campus 
could realize what a joy it is to chop wood for a dis- 
abled person or reroof and elderly woman's house," 
Thompson says. 

This mission work helped lead Thompson to High 
Point University. "I wanted to attend a small school in 
the Southeast where I could make a difference and be 
able to get individual help from my professors if I need 

it. I also looked for a Methodist-affiliated university 
because my faith is very important to me." 

He also chose HPU for its people. "Diversity makes 
people stronger," he said. "Sometimes it makes people 
uneasy, but once you become comfortable with it, you 
have the building blocks for a better community." 

Once at HPU, Thompson pursued a political sci- 
ence major, joined Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and last 
year was elected SGA President. 

Thompson considers one of his main attributes to 
be his people skills. "I always try to lend a sympa- 
thetic ear to people's concerns, and if I have the power 
to change things for the better, I try to exercise that 
power," Thompson says. 

However, he says the SGA holds much of the 
power, because it's the representative body for the stu- 
dents. Thompson can be seen presiding over meetings 
every other Thursday night in the Great Room. Th- 
ompson wants to have a capcity crowd at every meet- 
ing because of students' interest in their government. 
He would also like to see more involvement. "I know 
there are at least three organizations on campus for each 
student," he says. "I just wish students would take ad- 
vantage of at least one or two of those opportunities." 

SGA president Will Thompso relaxes in the 
office of his adviser, Dr. Vagn Hansen. 

With all this responsibility, this East Greenwich, 
R.I. senior tries to apply his carpe diem philosophy to 
everyone, even himself when he feels like he's losing 
perspective, "Live life to the fullest; tomorrow may 
never come."

Gus' view on campus partying laws 

By Gus Vieira 

Greek Editor 

The strict guidelines that have 
been set on fraternity parties by the 
Student Life Office have only made it 
easier for students to hop in their cars 
and drive drunk to the nearest off- 
campus party. What HPU does not 
realize is that students are going to 
drink, and we do not care about the 

Every weekend I see the same 
scene. Students drink on or off- 
campus; it really docs not matter 
where as long as we are drinking. At 
around 10 p.m., students go to the 
fraternity houses with a buzz and 
backpacks filled with beer. When you 
arc having fun, time zooms by. 
Before you know it, it is II :30, and 
security enters the fraternity houses 
and tells everyone to go home. Five 
minutes later, you can spot about 500 
students in the Millis parking lot 
looking for an off-campus party. 

One month ago, I was standing 
outside my fraternity house asking 
people to leave and telling them 
where "late-night" would be. A High 
Point police officer came up and said, 
"If you don't leave this parking lot in 
five minutes, I'm going to arrest you 
for trespassing." After that remark, I 
felt like telling him to go to hell. 

Instead, I used some restraint. I 
showed him my HPU ID and politely 
explained that this was my fraternity 
house. I continued to tell him I was 
trying to clear people out of our 
parking lot. Sorry for trying to help. 

A few minutes later, he ap- 

proached me again. That was when I 
decided to go. As he watched me 
leave, I picked up my half-consumed 
12-pack of beer and drove away. 

I know that not all students drive 
drunk, but I have to say that many do. 
It is the truth, and I do not care what 
anyone says. There is also a large 
number of students who take advan- 
cannot provide rides for everyone 
standing outside the Millis parking 
lot right after the fraternity parties are 
broken up. 

The solutions are simple. First, 
BACCHUS should be able to use 
HPU vans and run until 3 a.m. I have 
worked for BACCHUS and, when 
the group is busy, it can take 30 to 45 
minutes for people to get picked up. 
Also, how many times does 
BACCHUS get phone calls after 2 

Maybe the hours of fraternity 
parties can be extended, so people 
would just want to go to their dorms 
at the end of the night and not drive 
to off-campus parties. 

I know this message will have no 
immediate effect on the policy-makers 
at this university. They will look into 
this just like other student concern. 
They will read it and say how the 
Greeks are always battling for extra 
party hours. But this is not a Greek is- 
sue; it is about students on our campus 
regularly driving drunk. I just hope the 
policy-makers do not wait until one of 
us dies behind the wheel to decide that 
something needs to be done. 

The truth hurts, doesn't it?

Campus Chronicle 7 

Outkast, the hip-hop group from 
Atlanta, has released its second album 

By Melanie Kellam 

Special to the Chronicle 

The new album ATLiens from Outkast, the hip-hop 
duo, is climbing the charts. This is their second album. 
This album is no doubt going to give us hit after hit. 

The first song released off the new album, "Elevators," 
quickly rose to the top of the charts. It expresses the 
group's striving to climb to the top of the music business, 
using elevator as a metaphor. The group stresses that it is 
just trying to make it like everyone else. 

The new single off the album ATLiens, named from 
the CD title, is rapidly moving up the charts. Outkast, from 
Atlanta, refers to the non-native people there as 
"ATLiens." According to senior Anndria Davis, "The song 
makes you want to throw your hands in the air and wave 
them like you just don't care, just like the song says." It 
definitely puts you in an energetic mood. 

The album is highly recommended to hip-hop lovers 
since it combines great beats with brilliant lyrics.

Dance draws 850 
to Market Square 

By Amy Morgan 

Special to the Chronicle 

Homecoming 1996 was definitely a success. 
The annual dance held at Market Square in down- 
town High Point was attended hy over 850 people. 
The king and queen (Seth Carter and Stephcnie 
Catts) were crowned near the end or the dance. 

A parade of decorated cars and trucks trav- 
eled through campus Oct. 5. Fifteen organizations 
entered the parade. Lambda Chi took first place 
followed by Kappa Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha. 

An estimated 450 alumni came back for 
homecoming festivities. According to Mrs. Chris- 
tine Rollins, director of alumni relations, the num- 
ber of returning grads grows each year. 

Every year a golf tournament at Oak Hollow 
Golf Course kicks off the homecoming weekend 
for alumni. This year 84 alumni participated, in- 
cluding Tubby Smith, head basketball coach at 
the University of Georgia. 

The annual Alumni Association Awards Ban- 
quet was held Oct. 5 in the Millis Center. The 
Alumnus of the Year Award was given to Charles 
Edwards, class of '46. Dr. Dennis Carroll, direc- 
tor of teacher education, who graduated in 1974,

Hanks has a chart- 
topper on his hands 

That Thing You Do produces loads of laughter 

everyone in the group learns a lot about 
himself and one another. The ending is 
somewhat predictable, but, enhanced by 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

When was the last time you laughed 
out loud in a movie theater? If it's tak- 
ing you longer than 10 seconds to an- 
swer this question, then you need to go 
see That Thing You Do. 

Some people may have doubts about 
this film since it is Tom Hanks' first at- 
tempt at both writing and directing, but 
all of those doubts will disappear within 
minutes of the opening credits. This 
award-winning actor, who began his ca- 
reer doing stand-up comedy, is a natu- 
ral in his new, off-camera roles. That 
he also acts in this movie is just icing 
on the cake. 

Though the plot of That Thing You 
Do is fairly light-hearted and upbeat, 
and Hanks' character is not the main 
locus, I found myself thoroughly enter- 
tained by refreshingly real dialogue and 
several new faces. 

The story follows the experiences of 
a young small town band from Penn- 
sylvania that meets wide-scale success 
alter winning a local talent contest. 
While on the road to "The Big Time," 

Hanks' excellent writing, this Holly- 
wood finish is any thing but disappoint- 

No review of this movie would be 
complete without mentioning the mu- 
sic. The characters called it "snappy"; I 
call it contagious — (in a good way !). At 
first you might think, "Oh no, how many 
times am I going to have to hear this 
song?" But, before you realize what has 
happened, you'll find yourself begging 
for one last lick. This is definitely a 
soundtrack everyone will want to own. 

I left the theater with a few ques- 
tions about the loose ends that Hanks 
never ties up, (and I had seen enough 
olive green, orange and mustard yellow 
to last a lifetime), but somehow these 
things didn't really seem to matter when 
the final credits rolled. (Maybe it was 
because 1 was laughing so hard about 
the bass player never having a real 
name; he was just "the bass player.") 
Whatever the case, I think it's safe to 
say that Tom Hanks definitely has a 
"chart-topper" with That Thing You Do. 

Counting Crows can't recover greatness 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

The Counting Crows have returned 
from a three-year absence with a new 
effort, Recovering the Satellites. In place 
of catchy pop songs such as their big- 
gest hit, "Mr. Jones," lead singer Adam 
Durit/ has created a somber and plod- 
ding album that cannot rise above its own 

It's not surprising that Recovering the 
Satellites has failed to capture the spirit 
of August and Everything After. The 
band's first album was very successful, 
but it thrust the group into immediate 
mainstream recognition. Durit/. is decid- 
edly pessimistic this time out and, un- 
fortunately, has reached the Eddie 
Vedder level of whining. 

One of Duritz's greatest attributes is 
his lyrical skill. While the lyrics on this 

album are well written and introspective, 
Durit/. just can't find any reason to be 
happy. Some of the more spirited tracks 
such as "Daylight Fading," verses such 
as "Come and waste another year/ All 
the anger and the eloquence are bleed- 
ing into fear," manage to steal a line from 
R.E.M.'s "Don't Go Back to Rockville," 
but don't delve into any fresh areas. 

Previous comparisons to R.E.M. 
seem ill-fitting now. R.E.M. can do a 
credible job of mixing sadness and hap- 
piness into the same album, but the 
Counting Crows have not shown an abil- 
ity to sustain the positive energy from 
August and Everything After. In that al- 
bum, Duritz. peppered his storytelling 
with high-spirited gems such as "Mr. 
Jones" and "Rain King." 

The Counting Crows have left them- 
selves in an emotional rut and should try 
to regain some of their past optimism.

Day gives fantastic night of acoustics 

Coffee house singer gives 
overall stage performance 

By Heather Sitler 

Staff Writer 

If you happened to walk by the caf- 
eteria last Thursday around 10 p.m., 
you probably noticed the lack of people 
and the abundance of noise. Well, it's 
unfortunate that all of you House of 
Brews regulars didn't skip 50 cent draft 
night, because you missed an incred- 
ible performance. 

I must admit, I was a little skepti- 
cal of going at first, but when I got there 
(late, I'm always late), I was extremely 
glad that I came. Multi-talented singer 
and songwriter Roger Day had already 
been on stage a half hour by the time I 
got there, and immediately I wished I 
had picked this day to actually be on 
time for something. 

His talents are basically summed up 
as coffee house singer, but that label 
gives no indication of his overall stage 
presence. Armed with my cappuccino 
mug topped with whipped cream and 
cinnamon, I expected to walk in and 
see a guy strumming away while ped- 
estaled on a tall bar chair. But, to my 
pleasant surprise, he was bouncing 
around stage, full of energy and life. I 
knew I was going to have no problem 
staying awake. 

Roger writes all of his own songs, 
but he also performed some well known 
favorites as well. Some of his rendi- 
tions included "Mr. Jones" by The 
Counting Crows, "Satellite" by The 
Dave Matthew Band, and "Man on the 

Moon" by R.E.M. He also graced us 
with "Jenny" and "Miracle," two origi- 
nal songs off of his first CD Rich Man, 
Poor Man, Beggarman, Thief. His fol- 
low-up CD One Equal Road contains 
songs that equally impressed me. Some 
of his songs called for audience par- 
ticipation, and later he passed on a few 
noteworthy jokes. What do men and 
linoleum both have in common? If you 
lay them the right way the first time, 
you can walk all over them forever. 
Great stuff, huh? 

Day told us that his songs were all 
based on personal feelings and experi- 
ences, which when listening to some 
of them more closely, made you laugh 
out loud. His strong vocals and amaz- 
ing range so impressed me and my fel- 
low coffee drinkers, that we soon asked 
the question, "Hummm. wonder if he's 
married." As if he was reading our 
minds, he said, "This song is for my 
wife; I wrote it for her on our anniver- 
sary." Oh, well. 

The last hour, he played mostly re- 
quests. Let me tell you, I thought Rosie 
O'Donnell knew the words to every 
song (watch her show and you'll un- 
derstand). Day not only knew the words 
to every song we threw at him, but of 
course he could play it too. At one 
point, one of his strings broke, but that 
barely slowed him down. And not once 
did his enthusiasm fade, despite the fact 
that he was working a small crowd. 

I must admit he melted my heart 
when he sang a lullaby that he had writ- 
ten for his daughter. That is one CD 
that I am definitely going to spring for. 
Sorry if you missed it.

Campus Chronicle 9 

Students awaken to coffee houses 

Borders, Barnes and Noble, 
Morning Dew and Cup of Joe 
are a few popular shops 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Come Java Junkies, heed the 
clarion call for caffeination. Gather ye 
multitudes and drink coffee until sit- 
ting still is not humanly possible, and 
enjoy it. Coffee and college go hand in 
hand, and what better than to have a 
list of some of the best coffee shops in 
the Triad when you feel the need for 

For those of you with pockets a bit 
more lined than others, I highly recom- 
mend Borders in Greensboro or Barnes 
and Noble, coming soon to the Oak 
Hollow Mall complex. Borders and 
Barnes and Noble serve up a variety of 
lattcs, cappuccinos and coffee blends, 
using some of the best coffee to be 
found north of Colombia. Both shops 
are located in massive bookstores. 

The people and conversation of 
these places tend to lean heavily toward 
(he bookish, but intelligent conversa- 
tion abounds in the small shops and 
reading material is obviously easy to 

come by. 

Standard coffee shops, made fa- 
mous by beatniks and free spirits, gen- 
erally offer the same blends as the more 
expensive places but cost less because 
the beans aren't the same quality as the 
larger places. Tate St. Coffee and Cup 
of Joe in Greensboro as well as Morn- 
ing Dew in Winston-Salem are geared 
more toward the college set. 

Morning Dew and Cup of Joe oc- 
casionally have bands performing in 
the confines of the caffeine-saturated 
havens. All of these places allow you 
to unwind after a long day, and they're 
a good way (o meet some of the Triad's 
most interesting people. 

For those who don't have time to 
drive to Greensboro or Winston, Alex's 
House and Jennifer's have the no- 
holds- barred straight coffee as low as 
80 cents for a bottomless cup. This is 
perfect for those all-night study groups 
who have to get out and are having 
trouble staying awake. Usually, if you 
are searching for a good cup of brew, 
these are the best to go to. 

So, fellow coffee fiends, tear your- 
self away from pot scrape and embark 
on a mission for a truly great cup of 
coffee. Enjoy. 


Controversial DiFranco displays 
gritty, independent style in Dilate 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

The punk-folk singer Ani DiFranco 
has produced eight independent albums 
that broach tender topics like abortion 
and womanhood and universal topics 
such as love, pain and sexuality. 

Her latest work, Dilate, is full of won- 
derfully crafted songs that either break 
your heart or uplift your soul. Musically, 
the album is tastefully simplistic with 
three basic elements: DiFranco's acous- 
tic guitar and voice and the powerful 
accompaniment of drummer Andy 
Stochansky. Lyrically, there's one the- 
matic focus — relationships. 

The first track "Untouchable Face" 
is a vilifying song about of one of 
DiFranco's former lovers now enjoying 
a new relationship. It is quietly emotional 
and seems to he an anthem for anyone 
who has been dumped. We also find 
DiFranco sadly single in the confessional 
song "Done Wrong." The distant twang 
of steel guitars creates a sad mind-set and 

complements lyrics such as "How could 
you beg me to stay/ Reach out your 
hands and plead/ And then pack up your 
eyes and run away/ As soon as 1 agree." 

But don't get me wrong: DiFranco 
is not a weak woman. She doesn't al- 
ways need a man or woman, whichever 
the case may be, to fulfill her life. She's 
a feminist and a strong believer in inde- 
pendence. Sometimes, as she sings on 
the title track, she is "better off alone." 

The only downside to the disc is 
DiFranco's grueling 7:07 version of 
"Amazing Grace." It seems out of con- 
text and pointless. Also, the sequenced 
sounds of ringing bells is quite annoy- 

But not even that can destroy such a 
fruitful and inspiring album Dilate. One 
is left awed by DiFranco's honesty, her 
clever word play in "Superhero" and 
"Adam and Eve," the angular grooves 
of "Outta Me, Onto You" and "Shame- 
less" and the choppy punk riffs in "Na- 
poleon" and the originality of her folk- 
punk style.

O Bar kicks Triad's best tunes 

By Andrew T. White 

Staff Writer 

I don't know about you, but I love to 
dance. I picked two places to go to, to 
see which one was the best. The first one 
was Dadio's, and the other was the Bar. 

I have visited Dadio's many times in 
the past. It is located about 20 minutes 
away in Greensboro. For those of you 
who have never been to Dadio's, the at- 
mosphere is one of the nicest in com- 
parison to any of the other clubs I've 
been to. Dadio's has a spacious dance 
floor, which allows for lots of movement. 

This contrasts drastically with the 
Bar, which has minimal dance space for 
the number of people there. As for the 
music, the Bar has, by far, the better of 
the two. It features a variety of music 

such as hip-hop, techno and club. 
Dadio's plays music similar but not as 
good. For example, when I was there, 
the club played a slow song by The Tony 
Rich Project. Upon hearing this, I felt as 
if I was at my senior prom. No one goes 
to a club to slow dance. 

I have also found that almost every 
time that I have been to Dadio's the club 
played the same music. For example, the 
Macarena, which, don't get me wrong, 
is a fine dance, but, when it is played 
two or more times in a night, it gets just 
a bit annoying. 

If you just love to dance, then Dadio's 
or O Bar is good to go to; it just depends 
on the person. I'll let you be the judge 
of which one you like. If anything, they 
are both worth checking out at least one

HIV-positive Morrison should 
not box and endanger others 

By Todd "Red" Messner 

Staff Writer 

So they're going to let Tommy Morrison 
fight again. I'm having a very hard time figur- 
ing out how and why this decision came about. 
First of all the man has been diagnosed to be 
HIV-positive, and, in this day and age, we all 
know how dangerous this disease is. 

When word of Morrison's affliction became 
public, the boxer decided to retire due to the 
risk of his involvement in a sport in which the 
goal is to beat your opponent's brains out. He 
knew the severity then; what has changed this 
alter seven months? I can understand that he 
misses the sport which has been all he has done 
for years, but should we risk the safety of other 
boxers because of this? 

When Morrison had his press conference 
alter his test results, he had an explanation for 
why he got the disease: "I partied all the time 
and led a very promiscuous lifestyle outside of 
the ring." That lifestyle was his choice and, un- 
fortunately, it caught up to him. 

Professional boxing is obviously a bloody 
sport. It is not a coincidence that there is a cut 
man in every boxer's corner. Boxers get cut, 
they bleed and in a lot of cases, both boxers get 
cut. All the information that I have ever been 
taught says that the quickest way to spread 
AIDS is blood-lo-blood contact. Are we not 
setting up a very ugly scenario by letting this 
situation occur? 

Who in his right mind would fight a man in 
this position? Some fighters are willing to get 
into the ring with Morrison again. Where have 
they been the past 1 5 years? The morality of this 
type of decision making blows my mind. 
Tommy Morrison is not the last boxer on earth, 
and if you want to fight, find another opponent. 

Morrison wants his comeback fight to be 
mostly for charity. If he wants to help the war 
on AIDS, I think he could do it by doing work 

in clinics or talking to young fans about how 
this is going to affect his life. I don't think 
putting someone else at risk is a positive ex- 

The other problem I have are the special 
rules that will be used in any Morrison fight 
from this time on. The main rule change? If 
Morrison is cut at any point in the match, the 
fight stops, and whoever is ahead on points 
wins the bout. 

Let's be honest: he is going to get cut; it 
has happened to him plenty of times before. 
Now, how can having different rules for dif- 
ferent fighters be good for the sport? 

Let's say Morrison is in the fourth round 
of a fight and is ahead on points. His opponent 
fights back strong and is gaining momentum 
when he lands a big hook that stuns Morrison. 
Morrison wobbles back onto the ropes. His 
opponent moves in to take advantage of this 
but is stopped, because the hook cut Morrison 
on the cheek. 

That's it. The bell rings and the bout is over. 
Morrison, who was seconds away from taking 
a bad beating, is saved by his cut and wins on 
points. Who would want to watch this and ac- 
tually say they witnessed a fair, legitimate 
light? If it wasn't Morrison who was cut, that 
boxer on the ropes is on his way to being 
knocked out and losing. 

All sports are based on the outcome that 
someone will win or lose, and in some cases, 
maybe tie. That's what keeps them going and 
makes them loved. If you arc going to com- 
promise a sport, it loses its credibility and will 
hurt the sport in the long run. 

If Tommy Morrison is determined to have 
a condition that jeopardizes his opponents and 
his sport, I can't see why boxing is going to let 
this happen. All we can do now is wait and see 
if there is anyone out there who wants to put 
himself at risk by fighting this man. It's not 
the smartest move for the boxing profession. 

Women beat Longwood to 
advance in post-season soccer 

Panthers face Queens Saturday in semifinals 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

The women's soccer team shut 
out Longwood 2-0 at home Tues- 
day in the first round of the CVAC 

The first Panther goal was 
notched by Marie Wilson in the 
fifth minute, and the other was 
scored by Kat Krusas nearly half- 
way through the game. Panther 
goalie Jennifer Killoch had three 
saves. This makes the women 1 -0 
in the post- season. 

In the regular season, the 
women finished with a 9-8 over- 
all record and a 7-3 conference 
record. They lost to West Virgina 
Wesleyan, 4-0, Oct. 26 and Vir- 
ginia Tech, 6- 1 , Oct. 22. However, 
the women learned a great deal in 
those games. 

"Those are both extremely 
good schools. We gained lots of 
experience playing those type 
teams," said coach Heather 
Puckett. The women held the 
NCAA Division I Virgina Tech 
Hokies scoreless for 60 minutes. 

The women won against 
CVAC opponent Pfeiffer at home 
Oct. 14 by a score of 6-0. Unfor- 
tunately, the women lost to 
Erskine on the road Oct. 1 2 I -0. 

The team blanked Guilford 6- 
at home Oct. 10. The Guilford 
win followed a close Homecom- 
ing win Oct. 5. The Panthers beat 
Barton College 2-1 in overtime. 

Puckett stated, "The girls were 
really up for the game, and they 
did a great job of staying focused 
even though they had to wait an 
extra 30 minutes for the men's 
overtime game to finish." 

The women traveled to South 
Carolina to defeat Coker College 
Oct. 2 by a score of 1-0. The 
Chronicle erroneously reported in 
the Oct. 3 issue that the women 
beat Lees-McRae by a score of 3- 
1 . The women lost to Lees- 
McRae 3- 1 Sept. 30 in an away 

The Panthers' next game is a 
semifinial game against Queens 
Saturday at 1 1 a.m. They travel 
to Charlotte to play Queens, the 
number one seed.

Lady Panthers 
ranked second in 
pre-season poll 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

The women's basketball team again 
should be found among the top teams of 
the Carolinas- Virginia Athletic Confer- 
ence standings. The Lady Panthers ended 
last year with a 22-7 overall record, 16- 
2 in conference play, and as champions 
of the CVAC tournament. 

This year the women begin by being 
ranked second in the pre-season CVAC 
rankings, one point behind Longwood, 
which went 18-0 in the conference last 

However, coach Joe Ellenburg is not 
setting any goals other than the usual 
ones for every year. "First idea at the start 
of every year is to try to get personnel 
where you want them and see what kind 
of blend you have," he said. 

Ellenburg and the Panthers have a 
good nucleus to mesh new players with. 
The women are led by standout guards 
Karen Curtis, last year's Tournament 
MVP, and Dee Pennix, the CVAC Fresh- 
man of the Year. Also three-year starter 
Tiffanie Wilson returns to anchor the 
middle at center. 

The first job of the meshing process 
will be to replace starting forwards Greta 
Miles and Angie Fouts who graduated 
last year. "Now our job is to replace what 
they brought into the team," Ellenburg 
said. "It is one thing to replace a person; 
it's another thing altogether to replace

for the starting forward spots. But they 
are being challenged for the starting po- 
sitions as well as time behind Wilson by 
senior Erin Weatherstone, sophomore 
Julie Hunter and freshmen Tami Ramsey 
and Courtney Wharton. 

The backcourt is young. After Curtis 
and Pennix, there are four freshmen bat- 
tling for time. Annie Miller, from 
Charleston, W.V., has stood out early in 
practice and is going to be counted on 
to play valuable minutes. Challenges 
could from Keisha Boyd, a member of 
the volleyball team, Kristi Fisher and 
freshman Kelly Thomas. 

The Lady Panthers will spend the 
early part of the year blending the new 
players with the holdovers and trying to 
get together as a team. If they can do 
that quickly, they could again land near, 
if not at the top, of the CVAC. 

Men's basketball forced to start from 
scratch after loss of four key players 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports editor 

With a pre-season No. 1 conference 
and No. 4 regional ranking, the men's 
basketball team is not cracking under 
the pressure. Instead, it spent fall break 
practicing to achieve a top finish in the 
Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Confer- 

However, without the return of Mike 
Kirksey, Brian Wise, Demetrius 
Alexander and Damien Foster, the team 
will be starting over. Senior Brett 
Speight and sophomore Dave Witmer 
will provide the leadership for the team. 
Senior Chad Reeves, sophomore Ray 
Burney and junior Prentice Woods will 
be ineligible until the second semester. 

As a result, the team will be working 
with little depth. Transfer Maurice 
Madison and sophomore Jim Barkalow 
provide flexibility in their ability to play 
both guard and forward. Barkalow, who 
beat the odds by making the team as a 
walk-on last year, played well within 
his limitations last season. 

Sophomore Myron Stewart, red- 
shirted as a freshman last season, has 
been vastly improving his play at for- 
ward. Great things are expected from 
Speight, last year's CVAC Player of the 
Year and three-year veteran. Reeves 
will continue to help the team with his 
running ability. 

Last year, the team finished 24-8 
overall, 16-2 conference. The team 

placed second in the CVAC tournament 
after a loss in the finals to Queens, but 
it still received a bid to the Div. II East 
region playoffs and won in the first 
round against Presbyterian. 

This year, the conference tournament 
winner will be guaranteed a bid to play 
further. The Panthers also have to capi- 
talize on a "home-court advantage" 
since the CVAC tournament will be 
held at High Point. 

With only four returning players, the 
Panthers are challenged with learning 
to adapt to each other's playing styles 
and play well as a team. Steele is con- 
fident that by January the play will take 
shape on a consistent level as the team 
gains more depth. High Point will also 
have to learn to react to diversity and 
how to handle the good with the bad. 

With a four-month-long schedule, the 
team will also have to continue to get 
along off the court and tolerate one an- 
other. "Last season, I feel that this fell 
apart at the end of the season. Too many 
people's ego got the best of them," said 

On the other hand, Steele has a num- 
ber of highly skilled players at his dis- 
posal. If they continue working and 
blending, Steele has no doubt that the 
team will be successful. 

Steele was awarded the honor of 
CVAC Coach of the Year in 1 996. How- 
ever, he does not take all the credit for

Volleyball team continues 
undefeated tradition with 
27th straight CVAC win 

From Staff Reports 

The volleyball team eontinues to reach some 
dazzling milestones. 

For the second consecutive year,the Panthers 
went undefeated in conference play, capturing the 
regular-season Carolinas- Virginia (CVAC) cham- 
pionship. Equally impressive, coach Teresa 
Faucette's women have swept 27 straight CVAC 
matches. It's been since September of 1994 that 
the squad has suffered a conference loss. The team 
finished with a 23-6 overall record. 

"We've had really strong conference fin- 
ishes'' Paucette says. "From now on, we don't 
know how it will go." 

The coach is referring to the CVAC tourna- 
ment occurring this weekend at Lees-McRac. In 
the first round, the Panthers meet the winner of 
the Hrskinc-Mount Olive match. A tournament 
triumph might propel HPU into regional play. But 
no decision on post-season competition will be 
made until Nov. 17. 

Key players have been seniors Lori 
Kuykendall, Tiffanie Wilson and Anitra Lambeth, 
sophomore Holly Hendley and freshman Tahirah 

Golfers enjoy 
prosperous fall season 

The golf team competed in three tourna- 
ments this fall and finished in the top three of 
each. The Panther's "platinum" team won a 
rain-shortened HPU Collegiate Tournament at 
Oak Hollow Golf Course Sept. 10, beating 
second-place Lipscomb by nine strokes. 

HPU'sTom Moore won the 27-hole event 
with a 5-under 103. Tony Romani finished tied 
for fourth with a 108. In September, Donnie 
(ranks shot a new course record at Oak Hol- 
low, firing a 63 on the par-72 course.

to have Sasser's help. 

The team's first game is an exhibition against 
the Venezuelan National team Nov. 9. This is the 
only game this season that will not count toward 
the team's record. Regular season play begins 
Nov. 16. 

Men's soccer evens CVAC record 

Coach Gibson says his 
young team is maturing 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports Editor 

With the Carolinas-Virginia Ath- 
letic Conference tournament slated 
for next weekend, the men's soccer 
team is faced with the chance of plac- 
ing as high as third in the conference. 

Before fall break, the team played 
its best match of the season from start 
to finish against Catawba for Home- 
coming. High Point lost 1-0 in over- 
time against Catawba, the 13th 
ranked team in NCAA Div. II. 

On Oct 9, the team defeated 
Pfciffer 2-0 in overtime. This was a 
key victory for the Panthers as they 
won a conference game on the road 
and the team left for fall break with a 

positive feeling. 

Coming back from break, practice 
has been like starting over. Though 
practices have been good, the condi- 
tioning level has not been the same. 
The team lost to UNC-Pembroke 5-2 
on Oct 24 and defeated Erskine 2-1 
in another conference game on the 

Goalkeeper Skip Korotva was 
named the CVAC Player of the Week 
after the Homecoming game. Coach 
Woody Gibson also gave a olades to 
Korotva's goal-saving in the 2-1 vic- 
tory over Lees McRae. 

"Everyone has been working hard. 
The team has learned to deal with the 
reality of playing soccer at the col- 
lege level. They are maturing and 
improving which shows in every prac- 
tice," said Gibson. 

Hich Point's word is 6-10. 4-4.

Kids played important roles 


Area children played a big part in the success oiOliver! The Tower 
Players' version of the play featured their biggest cast ever. 

Oliver! ranks among best 
Tower Players 1 productions 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

Apart from the mediocre British 
accents, the Tower Players' production 
of Oliver! was excellent. I had my 
doubts about the musical version of 
Charles Dickens' classic, but I was 
pleasantly surprised. 

The play begins in a boarding 
house, where starving children are fed 
a bowl of gruel, and they eat it like 
maniacs. Mr. Bumble (Michael 
Bennington) and the Widow Corney 
(Heidi Edsall) sell Oliver, after he asks 
for more food, to the Sowerberrys 
(David Miller and Lauren Petrosino), 
who were undertakers. 

Oliver runs away from the under- 
takers. The Artful Dodger finds Oliver 
and takes him to Fagin's (Brian 
Ersalesi) lair. Fagin gives him a place 
to sleep, and drama ensues... 

The entire show was excellent as 
a whole, but there were a few 
standouts. Heidi Edsall and Chase 
Bowers both delivered their brands of 

terrific vocals. When Edsall began "I 
Shall Scream," it was obvious the au- 
dience was in for one more spectacu- 
lar night of vocals. 

The male standout vocalists were 
Ersalesi and Bennington. Their songs 
were filled with rich sound. 

There were also a few surprises 
Despite their small roles, Nancy 
May He Id, Lauren Petrosino and 
Heather Doerr had great stage pres- 
ence. As Maylield burst on stage, her 
silky voice caressed the audience's 
ears, pleading for someone to buy her 
"sweet red roses." Doerr, a milkmaid, 
vended milk with her wholesome voice 
singing, "Will you buy any milk today 
mistress?" Petrosino also mesmerized 
the audience with "That's Your Fu- 
neral." One wonders why she has not 
had significant roles before. 

Not only actors deserve praise. It 
was obvious that much effort went into 
the nice sets and costumes. 

This production was only slightly 
overshadowed by last year's Bye Bye 

NBC takes Quinn under its wing as publicity intern 

By Ashleigh Barbour 

Staff Writer 

Senior Kate Quinn never dreamed 
that doing a research paper for school 
would turn into an internship she would 
never forget. Quinn, who lives in 
Barnegat. N.J., spoke with the same 
woman at NBC Studios so many times 
about her paper that they finally offered 
her a summer internship. 

"I knew it would be a great opportu- 
nity, and I was getting six credits for it," 
she said ahout her three-month employ- 
ment at NBC over the summer. 

Within a few days of starting her 
internship, Quinn was put to work by at 
least six different publicists. One day, 

she was asked to write a feature story 
ahout Jane Pauley's 20th anniversary. 
Another day she wrote a press release lor 
the show Dateline NBC". 

Quinn got to meet a lew famous 
people at Rockefeller Plaza, including 
Jane Pauley, Katie Couric, Chris Farley 
and Tow Brokaw. She met Farley in an 
elevator and bumped into Tom Brokaw 
in the hallway. 

"Tom Brokaw smiled and said 'ex- 
cuse me,' and all I could do was stare at 
him in amazement, "Quinn said. 

The biggest advantage of her job was 
establishing personal contacts for the 
future. "I might get a job from them after 
graduation if I play my cards right," she 

There were also disadvantages of the 
internship, the biggest one being that she- 
did not get paid. Quinn had to get up 
every morning at 6 a.m., dress like a 
professional and lake the subway from 
New Jersey toManhattan. She wasquick 
to admit, "I was completely broke and 
had no social life over the summer." 

Quinn had to write weekly journals 
and fax them to Pal Haun, her mentor at 
HPU, every Friday. Quinn said that Haun 
was very supportive and kept in close 
contact with her during the internship. 

All in all, it proved to be an eventful 
summer for Quinn. She gained friend- 
ships that will help her in "the real world" 
and hopefully has ajob lined up after she 


Kinsella delivers 
Phoenix Literary 
Festival's keynote 
speech today 

By Kristen Long 

News Editor 

W.P Kinsella, whose book Shoeless 
Joe became the hit movie Field of 
Dreams, will be speaking today at 8 p.m. 
in Hay worth Chapel for the Phoenix Lit- 
erary Festival. 

"He's more like a stand-up humorist 
instead of just a speaker," said Kinsella's 
agent. Bill Thompson. 

Kinsella has just finished a tour 
across most of Canada promoting his 
new book // Wishes Were Horses. This 
book is the last in a trilogy with Shoeless 
Joe and The Iowa 
Baseball Confed- 

Kinsella be- 
lieves that baseball 
is fascinating to fic- 
tion writers because 
of its open- 

"Other sports 
arc twice enclosed - 
first by time limits 
and then by playing 

boundaries," said Kinsella. "Baseball's 
foul lines diverse into forever." 

For anyone who wants to become a 
writer, Kinsella offered the following 
advice: "Read, read, read and read more. 
When you find something that thrills 
you, take it apart paragraph by para- 
graph, line by line, and word by word. 
Find the tricks that author uses, and then 
use those tricks the next time you write. 

"I keep about 20 projects going at one 
tune," he added. "That way, there is no 
such thing as writer's block." 

Although Kinsella has lived in 
Canada his entire life, he admits that 
most of his visits are to colleges in the 
United States. "Canadian universities are 
too cheap to pay you," he said. 

Figures remain undisclosed about the 
amount HFU has paid Kinsella.

Former RA defends guide to campus life 

To the editor: 

I was rather disturbed at reading Kate 
Mannion's article "New guide to cam- 
pus life full of questionable objections" 
(Oct. 3) that I felt the need to write a reply 
all the way from Paris, where I am cur- 
rently studying abroad. 

In this article, Ms. Mannion slates 
how she and apparently other students 
disagree with the regulations stated in 
the Guide to Campus Life. As a former 
RA, maybe I can help to case the minds 
of the concerned students. 

First, it is stated that the fine for 
throwing objects out a window is three 
times higher than for possessing stolen 
property. You are right in this, but there 
is a very good reason for the difference in 
the two fines. 

Having an object thrown from the 
fourth floor hit you on the head is cer- 
tainly not going to feel good. When I was 
an RA in Belk last year, I had to dodge 

glass bottles being thrown from the bal- 
conies several times. This rule is imple- 
mented for safety reasons. Shouldn't we 
applaud our school for caring more about 
the safety of our students than whether or 
not someone is possessing a stolen traf- 
fic sign in his room? 

The article also stated that discussion 
should take place between the students 
and staff. I agree that discussion should 
take place; it already docs. All that an RA 
does is refer people; there are no such 
things as automatic fines. Those stated in 
the guide are simply guidelines. It does 
no good to beg the RA not to fine you, 
since it isn't he who does such things. 
Only after a discussion with the area 
coordinator is action taken. 

Obviously, there is indeed a logical 

purpose for each rule and the amount of 

general fine assessed in the guideline.

Perhaps you were not there at all, Just thought of us that day. 

Whatever you did to console our hearts, 
We thank you so much whatever the part.

Freshman's research finds students and community 
want a football team - but don't get your hopes up 

Rob Humphreys 


Every now and then, 
students voice con- 
cerns about High 
Point getting a football team. 
Freshman Ryan Grimsland 
polled 617 students and 
found that all hut nine sup- 
ported the idea. 

Grimsland, originally from New 
Paltz, N.Y., wants a football team at 
HPU. He enlisted the aid of 10 other 
students and, over the span of a month, 
polled 5,000 members of the High 
Point community. Eighty-two percent 
said they would attend games if HPU 
had a team. 

Now, everyone knows that polls 
can be altered to obtain a desired re- 
sult. When I first saw Grimsland's fig- 
ures, I naturally had suspicions. But af- 
ter discussing the validity of his poll- 
taking methods with political science 
professor John Altman, I was con- 
vinced that Grimsland wasn't making 
this up. The poll was scientific and 
therefore legitimate. 

So, what does this all mean? Will 
President Martinson and the Board of 
Trustees sec these figures and embark 
on a crusade to bring us the pig- 
skinned sport 7 

In a nutshell, no. 

Fielding a football team simply is 
not compatible with the university's 
current athletic needs, general devel- 
opment plans and financial situation. 

The school's top athletic 
priority is getting Division 
I-AA status, not starting a 
football team. Too many 
other sports must be up- 
graded and added to com- 
ply with NCAA standards. 
Right now, a football team 
is out of the question. 
It becomes even more 
evident when looking at the university's 
lack of dorm space. Where would we 
house these guys? The dorms are 
packed, and new student housing prob- 
ably won't be built until well after 2000. 
Until more rooms are available, no way 
will 53 guys with an average SAT of 
800 displace 53 prospective honors stu- 

Sure, getting a team brings more 
national recognition to a university and 
inevitably attracts more students. But 
fielding a team is expensive, and stu- 
dents now will end up paying for a team 
they won't be around to see. Besides, 
the university is investing most of its 
capital in scholastic improvements. 

Having a football team also 
changes the complexity of a campus. 
Fraternity guys beware: you won't be 
the big men on campus anymore. 

So, as you can see, even with 99 
percent of students saying they'd like a 
football team, it's not going to happen. 
Not in the near future, at least. But wait 
around long enough, after all this de- 
velopment is done in 10 or 15 years, 
and you could be watching the Panthers 
on the gridiron on a Saturday afternoon.

Students split on McGovern's underage drinking speech 

His daughter's death has prompted him 
to embark on a noble crusade 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

Former Senator George 
McGovern addressed his con- 
cern for underage drinking as a 
cause of alcoholism in college 
students in his speech Oct. 29. 
McGovern recounted his per- 
sonal experience with alcohol- 
ism as the cause of his daughter 
Terry's death. Terry was found 
frozen to death in a snowbank as 
a result of being under the influ- 
ence of alcohol. 

McGovern's message was 
clear. Anyone can become an 
alcohol ic and lose complete con- 
trol. Even though his daughter 
died at age 45, she had been an 
alcoholic as a college student. 
The drinking age back then was 
18, and Terry's death clearly 
illustrates the consequences of 
adolescent drinking. 

Even though we are no longer 
adolescents, McGovern empha- 
sized that a reduction in under- 
age drinking would dramatically 
reduce the number of adult al- 
coholics. The fact that Terry 
didn't die until middle-age 
doesn't lessen the severity of 
her alcoholism. She suffered 
throughout her entire life, going 
in and out of rehab programs, 
always relapsing. 

McGovern was trying to tell 

us that the effects of this sick- 
ness are just as bad as the result- 
ing death itself. He said alcohol 
reduced Terry 's "spirit for life." 
How many of us have friends 
who fit this description? We may 
not necessarily say they've lost 
their spirit, but we say they're 
trashed or passed out. Some- 
times we wonder why their 
grades are slipping. Other times 
we don't understand how they 
can be so ruthless on Saturday 
night, yet can't remembera thing 
on Sunday morning. This is the 
kind of behavior McGovern 
wants to see end by enforcing 
the "under 21" law. 

After having to mourn the 
death of his own daughter, I can 
see how McGovern would want 
to spend the rest of his life try- 
ing to save college students, like 
us, from the same fate. I don't 
think his mission is out of touch 
or old-fashioned. 

I heard a number of students 
disregard McGovern's entire 
speech just because they were 
worried about not being able to 
drink underage. The fact is that 
McGovern is probably more in 
touch with the consequences of 
alcoholism than anyone else in 
America. He was reaching out 
to us, trying to make us realize 
how similar we are to his daugh- 
ter, in every respect. 

The former senator is out of touch; teens 
are capable of drinking responsibly 


Former senator and 
presidential candidate 
George McGovern spoke to 
students on the dangers of 
alcoholism Oct. 29. 

The enforcement of the "un- 
der 21" law would change my 
weekend routine in almost ev- 
ery way. That doesn't make the 
facts any less dramatic, though. 
McGovern compared the num- 
ber of deaths in the Vietnam 
War to the number of deaths 
that resulted from alcoholism 
during that time. The Vietnam 
war memorial would have to be 
20 times bigger to represent al- 
cohol-related deaths during that 

How could I be bothered by 
his proposal? It was the serious-

A few weeks ago, former 
U.S. Senator George McGovern 
came to campus to speak on 
how alcoholism had a tragic ef- 
fect in ending his daughter's life. 

"The 21-and-over law is a 
good law," McGovern said. "If 
we can keep people from drink- 
ing until they're 21, it can 
greatly reduce the chances of 

Is that really possible? I 
think not. 

I do not want to sound like 
an ass and underestimate the 
struggles that McGovern faced 
with his daughter. But the man 
is out of touch. 

Every summer I visit my 
birthplace of Brazil where the 
drinking age is 1 8 but not regu- 
lated. In my many summers 
down there, I have rarely seen 
binge drinking. 

People do drink, but in a re- 
sponsible fashion. I have a few 
close friends in Brazil, but none 
of them are alcoholics. On this 
campus it is a different scenario. 
I have several alcoholic friends. 

Is that some new term that 
no one has ever heard of? Par- 
ents are the ones who should 
educate their children on how 

to drink. But since the govern- 
ment states that underage drink- 
ing is illegal, parents avoid the 

Let's be realistic. The en- 
forcement of the 21-and-over 
law allows us students to think 
of more creative ways around 
the system. 

It is so easy. We can either 
have little plastic cards that say 
we are over 21 or we can just 
ask a friend who is of age to buy 
us beer. Those are what we call 

Let's use marijuana for an 
example. Everyone knows it is 
illegal. But this is not an issue 
that only surrounds college stu- 
dents. People smoke it and they 
do not really care about the con- 
sequences. Even good ol' Bill 
took a hit while in England. 

That is the same way that we 
college students feel about al- 
cohol. Binge drinking is what 
people do by choice. If they 
want to become alcoholics, that 
is their prerogative. 

I wonder if McGovern 
avoided the issue with his 
daughter. Did he ever talk to her 
about underage drinking and 
how to drink responsibility? 

I think it is impossible to 
stop underage drinking. But it 
is very possible to educate teens 
on how to drink responsibly. 


As we grow older, it becomes harder for 
those special holiday-season get-togethers 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

As a kid, I loved the holidays. 
I loved the turkey for Thanksgiving; 
I almost always got a drumstick, maybe 
two, if I was lucky. And if the celebration 
was at our house, as it often was, I took 
turkey sandwiches to school for the next 
week — a welcome change from peanut 
butter on crackers. 

I loved the honey-baked ham we had 
once or twice for Christmas dinner. Now 
there was a real treat. 

I loved corn-on-the-cob, sweet and 
fresh, often homegrown. Except for the 
four years I had braces when corn-on- 
thc-cob was off limits, it was my favorite 
part of the meal. 

I loved Christmas presents, of course. 
There were occasionally gifts I didn't 
care for — socks, for instance — but get- 
ting was fun. And, as I grew older, so was 

The one part I didn't like about holi- 
days was being patronized by the rest of 
the family — I'm the youngest by 1 6 years. 
But I did love listening to the stories that 
bounced back and forth among my par- 
ents, my grandparents, my siblings, their 
spouses and later, my nieces and 
nephews. Curled up in one of our 
wingback chairs, I listened with great 
interest. This was my family; this was 
my history. 

But everyone is scattered now; we're 
never all together for holidays anymore. 
Last year, my parents and I had Thanks- 
giving dinner with my brother and his 

family at a restaurant in Raleigh — a far 
cry from our dining room table, crowded 
with relatives. Besides, mass-prepared 
sliced turkey can't compare to a home- 
cooked drumstick fresh from the oven. 
We spent Christmas at home — no 
guests, no relatives, just a few phone 
calls. Somehow, the holidays have lost 
their warmth, their sparkle, their mean- 
ing for me. "Oh, it's just another break 
from classes," I tell myself. "Some time 
to catch up on things; get stuff done." 

In a few years, it will be different. 
John and I will decide each holiday 
whether to visit family or stay in and 
celebrate together at home. 

But this year, John will go home to 
his family, and I will stay in Asheboro 
with mine. So I have decided to make the 
holidays special — if only for myself by 
putting the meaning back into Thanks- 
giving and Christmas. 

For Thanksgiving. I will set aside 
time to think about the past, look forward 
to the future and give thanks for what I 
often take for granted — my God, my 
country, my family, my friends and High 
Point University. Most of all, I will give 
thanks for John and his friendship and 

For Christmas, I will give from the 
heart, not out of obligation or expecta- 
tion. And I will receive in the same way. 
I will enjoy the beauty and music of the 
season and rejoice in its true meaning. I 
will share my love with my family and 

And for all of you: I wish you "Happy

Deep Water and No Outlet rock at Triangle 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

The atmosphere at Triangle Billiards was 
less rednccky than usual Nov. I because of the 
HPU students who were supporting student 
bands. Deep Water and No Outlet. 

Both bands gave great performances. It is 
impossible to compare the two. Deep Water 
draws from a rich blues base while No Outlet 
performs a psychedelic brand of rock and roll. 

Deep Water played covers such as "T-Bone," 
"Black Magic Woman" and "Hey Joe." The 
audience, which cheered loud enough to drown 
out the music at times, also heard a few original 
tunes. Scth Carter, lead guitarist, got into the show so much he not only gave the crowd great guitar 
licks but a little blood. Carter ripped the strings from his guitar. Chris Hendrix's guitar aided Carter's 
well. David Howell on drums and Brent Ward on bass guitar set the beat for the show. 

After Deep Water's performance. No Outlet quickly came out and boosted the crowd's adrenaline 
level, performing mostly rocking originals with a few covers from the likes of REM. The band formed 
well-rounded guitar licks, keyboard strokes and drum beats. The dance floor was never empty while 
the band played. John Kinney, front man for NoOutlet, even gave away CDs to two dedicated dancers.

activities than most people think

DeVan lands jobs at two radio stations 

By Zach Johnston 

Special to the Chronic tc 

Who says we should be 
scared of graduating from col- 
lege ? Nate De Van's experience 
in college is paying off during 
his first year working. DeVan.a 
Blackwood, N.J. native, gradu- 
ated in May with an Einghsh/ 
communications major and is 
currently working for two area 
radio stations— WXRA FM, 
94.5 and WSJS AM, 600. 

DeVan worked for the col- 
lege radio station, WWIH 90.3, 
for two years and has success- 
fully made the transition into 
the real world. 

"College radio gave me the 
experience for these jobs," 
Devan said. "It definitely gave 
me the impetus to work on the 
radio. I wanted to play music 
loudly and say what I thought 
about issues. College radio was 
the perfect format for that." 

He still has the same mental- 
ity and admits he blares some 
White Zombie or Rage Against 
The Machine when he has some 
spare time at the end of an hour. 

DeVan began an internship 
with WSJS during the spring of

his senior year. He then landed 
a job with the news and talk 
radio station and usually works 
the late shift or afternoons, pro- 
ducing live talk shows. 

"If you have ever seen Roz 
on the TV show Frazier, that is 
what I do," says DeVan, about 
his position with the AM sta- 

DeVan does not mind work- 
ing the "graveyard" shift at 94.5 
on weekends from 1-6 a.m. "It's 
cool; you get some interesting 
characters calling at 4 a.m.," he 

He hopes to pick up a couple 
more shifts a week to solidify a 
full time DJ position 

DeVan decided to pursue his 
radio ambitions during college . 
"I'm not sure when I got the 
bug," DeVan said. He does re- 
call the excitement which capti- 
vated him, saying, "There is 
nothing like the adrenaline rush 
of an open microphone with 
flowing conversations and slip- 
ping in a few 'Nate-isms' here 
and there." DeVan's audience 
consists of 20,000 people lis- 
tening at any given second, on 
either station, which adds to the 
on-air experience. 

His band Fried Chicken is 
another reason DeVan is in the 
broadcast business. As a bass 
player, DeVan hopes he can use 
his radio experience to the 
band's benefit. 

"I would like to use radio as 
a stepping-stone to my music 
career," he said. 

The band has been together 
for two years and is just break- 
ing into the scene. DeVan hopes 
he can further the band's suc- 
cess with hard work and oppor- 
tunities to promote his music on 
the air.

Schlimmer dazzles chapel 
crowd with opera vocals 

By .Mike Bennington 

Special to the ChronicU 

"All the world is a stage.' a 
great playwright once said. On 
Nov. 7, this statement proved 
true during the extraordinary 
performance of one of opera s 
great voices. 

Alexa Jackson Schlimmer. 
professor of music, gave a 
memorable performance in the 
chapel. Her vocal talent is 
something thai enabled her to 
study under some of the best 
vocal coaches in the world. 
Trained in London, Austria and 
Germany, this virtuoso of mod- 
ern opera has gone on to win 
numerous awards and gain na- 
tional recognition. 

Schlimmer is a two-time re- 
gional winner in the Metropoli- 
tan Auditions of the Air and is 
one of three professors in 
America to win the National 
Association of Teachers of 
Singing Artists' Competition. 

Schlimmer began her opera 
career at the age of 1 9, perform- 
ing with the Charlotte Sym- 
phony Orchestra. Her career 
then rocketed her into more 
than 30 roles in such operas as 
The Barber of Seville and La 
Boheme. Schlimmer has also 
achieved recognition by giving 
a solo presentation at the famed 
Spoleto Festival and perform- 
ing for television and radio au-

During her recital on cam- 
pus, Schlimmer performed vari- 
ous pieces from great classical 
composers like Vivaldi and 
Puccini, as well as music writ- 
ten by modern composers like- 
Leonard Bernstein and Andrew 
Lloyd Webber. 

Her mix of classical and 
modern music was something 
rarely heard in a formal recital. 
However, with the help of sev- 
eral of her students from the 
Greensboro Music Academy, 
Schlimmer's choice of music 
blended into a smooth mix of 
old and new. 

At the conclusion of her per- 
formance, Schlimmer received 
a standing ovation. Her lilting 
voice and control of the stage 
are things to be envied by any 
modern performer.

Weast instructs future teachers on 
being positive role models for kids 

The superintendent of 
Guilford County Schools 
spoke in Dr. Royal's 
education class 

By Alexandra Munday & 
Ashleigh Barbour 

Staff Writers 

Jerry Weast, superintendent of 
Guilford County Schools, gave the 
world' s shortest lesson in effective teach- 
ing to Dr. Betty Royal's education class 
Nov. 12. 

He began by asking the class about 
the best and worst teachers they ever had 
and wrote their qualities on the board. 
Students listed such attributes as friendly, 
concerned and supportive under the 
"best" side. Under the "worst" side, such 
things as frightening and unprepared were 
given. He then pointed to the "best" list 
and explained that a teacher must have 
these qualities in order to be effective. 

"You will influence the people you 
have in your class the same way these 
people affected you," Weast said. 

According to Weast, in order to help 
teachers educate children effectively, 
parents must begin at birth with the proper 
care and development. Parents provide 
care but are unaware that development is 
needed to guide the actual learning pro- 
cess. Before many children reach kin- 
dergarten, they arc dcvclopmentally de- 
layed because they have not been taught 
the proper learning skills. Weast wants 

to improve on getting children ready for 
kindergarten so he can implement his 
education plan. 

"We want reading with some sort of 
fluency and comprehension by the sec- 
ond grade," he said. 

Teaching children to read is the most 
important part of the plan because "read- 
ing is the key to every thing." Since proper 
reading skills should be learned by the 
second grade, third, fourth and fifth grade 
students should focus on relating their 
subjects to the real world. Teachers of 
these grades should find out what inter- 
ests their students have. 

In sixth, seventh and eighth grades, 
children begin to change physically and 
become rebellious. Weast believes teach- 
ers must begin to build foundations and 
"give the children a higher vision" dur- 
ing these crucial years. Children need to 
be interested in learning by the eighth 
grade since the ninth grade has the high- 
est dropout rate in the country. 

Weast wants students to realize that 
education goes beyond the 12th grade 
and continues to at least grades 13 and 
14. Weast said some form of higher 
education, either at a four-year or com- 
munity college, is now necessary for 
people entering the work force. 

Royal, associate professor of educa- 
tion, asked Weast to come to her class to 
help future teachers get a better under- 
standing of his education plan. 

"High Point provides a lot of good 
teachers for Guilford County," Royal 
said. "The fact that he cares enough to 
come means a lot."

Dr. Lester Thurow was the 
topic of debate at the 
faculty's global symposium 

By Amy Morgan 

Staff Writer 

After watching a video presentation 
by economist Dr. Lester Thurow, a panel 
of professors gave differing opinions on 
his views and predictions Nov. 1 1. 

The panel consisted of Dr. Kathy 
Carter, Dr. George Coggins, Dr. Vagn 
Hansen, Dr. Frankie Gurganus, Dr. 
Carole Head, Dr. Michael McCully and 
Dr. Charles Warde. 

Dr. Marlon Winters opened the 
evening by giving a brief history of

Mont, in 1938. In 1956, he attended 
Williams College in Massachusetts and 
majored in economics. 

Winters said, "He is one of the most

unteered our services at the big J.C. 
Penney event by serving refreshments 
and answering people's questions. Chris 
Rash and pledge Chris Freeman dressed 
up as the HPU Panther at the event. 

We also took a trip to the animal

years writing and publishing a variety of 
books and articles. His most recent book 
is The Future of Capitalism. 

After watching Thurow's speech, 
each member of the panel gave a brief 
summary of what he or she felt about 
Thurow's beliefs. 

Coggins started by saying, "Dr. 
Thurow's comments are very thought- 
provoking." Because some of Thurow's 
predictions were pessimistic, Warde said 
jokingly, "If I were in the 1 8-30-year-old 
group, I would probably go outside and 
die right now." 

McCully agreed withThurow'sopin- 
ion that we have to be adaptable. When 
it was Gurganus's turn to speak, she said, 
"I feel like he [Thurow] is exaggerating 
quite a bit." While Head did not agree 
with everything in Thurow's speech, she 
said, "He makes several points that no 
one can deny."

Vieira's wrong — students should 
be held responsible for drinking 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

I did not feel that Gus Vieira's ar- 
ticle in the Oct. 31 issue of ihcCampus 
Chronicle was appropriate or informa- 
tive. If Vieira expects students and 
policy-makers to listen to and respect 
his point of view, then he might want to 
begin his appeal with that same respect. 

First of all, Vieira was too emotion- 
ally wrapped up in the issue to repre- 
sent the student body accurately. Not all 
students are so caught up in drinking 
that they disregard the importance of 
either having a designated driver or 
staying in one place. 

Secondly, I do not see the relevance 
of Vieira's story about his exchange 
with the police officer. Is he implying 
that the police are somewhat at fault for 
students' irresponsible drinking? I hope 
not. I can see why he may have been 
upset by being threatened with what 
seemed like an unreasonable arrest. 
However, getting behind the wheel with 
a half-consumed twelve-pack was not 

the answer. 

Similarly, Vieira's solution for the 
problem of drinking and driving is not 
entirely appropriate or realistic. 
Though I agree that the University 
should look into providing larger ve- 
hicles for BACCHUS transportation, 
I am not sure many people would be 
willing to work BACCHUS until 3 
a.m. It is hard enough finding people 
to work BACCHUS as it is now. Ex- 
tending fraternity party hours is a nice 
idea, but not likely on a campus that is 
trying to cut down on alcohol con- 
sumption in general. 

I agree that this is not a Greek is- 
sue. Many independents party as much 
if not more than Greeks. What we all 
need to realize, though, is that this 
problem will never be solved by 
policy-makers. The only effective so- 
lution is for students to take a stand 
against drunk driving and learn how 
to drink responsibly. I just hope that 
students do not wait until one of us dies 
behind the wheel before they take ac-

Campus Chronicle 7 

College kids enliven jazz with improv performances 

By Eugene Liauw 

Staff Writer 

Each generation defines its impression of life through 
the art and jazz fans around the world. Look to the North 
Texas One O'Clock Lah Band for its interpretation of what 
jazz is. After hearing 52 minutes of music on this CD, I 
realized that jazz is alive and well. 

For those who do not know the history of the One 
O'Clock band, these guys are graduate students who play 
music straight through, never seeing the music piece pre- 
viously, playing it perfectly, and when they are done, they 
make the decision to either keep the music or drop it. 

Most of the players land in professional bands. Scott 
Englebright, former lead trumpet of Lab 95, is playing in 
Maynard Ferguson s Big Bop Nouveau Band. Most of 

The Day will touch your heart 

By Melanie Kellam 

Special to the Chronicle 

Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, singer, producer 
and songwriter, keeps his successful career going with 
the release of his new album The Day. 

The first release from the album is a remix of 
Howard Hewitt's and Dana Meyer's hit "This Is For 
The Lover In You." The song features L.L. Cool J, 
Howard Hewitt, Jody Watley and Jeffrey Daniels. This 
first release is already hitting the top of the charts. 

In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Babyface 
says that all the songs he wrote on this album are in- 
spired by his wife. 

R&B lovers will not be disappointed by The Day. 
Babyface put his feelings on paper and combined them 
with beautiful music. Special musical guests appear 
on the album: Mariah Carey, Kenny G, Mike Edmonds 
(brother of Babyface) and more. This album will touch 
your heart and soul.

these guys are in their early 
twenties and their play is 
more advanced than some 
professionals. Some of the 
compositions like 

"Tomorrow's Destiny" have 
very mature solos by Luis 
Hernandez on tenor sax and 
Tyler Kuebler on baritone 

The intensity of the music is as good as if you heard 
the group in performance. This is not just any ordinary 
college band. This is a very mature ensemble that knows 
how to improvise. This band inspired me to see that jazz 
is here to stay. I strongly recommend buying this CD. It 
is worth every penny you paid. 

UNCG pays tribute to Big Band era 

By Eugene Liauw 

Staff Writer 

The "Tribute to the Big Bands" concert performed by 
the UNCG Jazz Ensemble had its good and bad moments. 
The selection of the music was excellent, the band playing 
classics from Miller to Davis. 

Jesse Krebs was a crowd favorite; he played with 
maturity under very difficult music standards. Another 
pleasing part of the concert was vocals by Elizabeth 
Harris. Her scat singing ability was amazing, showing 
that it seemed like second nature. The trombone section 
was very strong led by Daniel Clayter, also a great soloist. 
There were also some downfalls of the concert. 

The trumpet section had problems several times with 
projection and dynamics. An experienced trumpet player 
knows that when you play lead trumpet, you play high 
notes no differently from the lowest notes on the staff. 
The lead trumpet did not make the cut because he was 
very timid in playing high notes and did not project very 
well. The solo trumpet player, Jason Honeycutt, purchased 
a Martin trumpet that jazz artist Miles Davis played on 
for most of his career. 

The band performed Davis' arrangement "So What" 
where Honeycutt had an improvisation solo. I know he 
is not supposed to sound exactly like Miles, but as John 
Coltrane once said, "Improvisation is an art where it docs 
not matter how long you play. If you can't say it in five 
minutes, you can't say it at all." 

The concert was presented well, except for 
inexperienced lead playing by Jonathan Calson. The 
presentation of the music from the Big Band era was great.

Ghostface Killah's Ironman 
best rap album of the year 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

Ghostface Killah 
is yet another member 
of the Wu-Tang Clan 
to release a solo album 
within the last two 
years. This particular 
album, Ironman, is the best rap album this year. 
Ghostface ranks just behind Method Man and his 
frequent partner Raekwon as the best of the Wu- 
Tang rappers. 

The best cuts on Ironman actually involve art- 
ists other than Ghostface. On "All That I Got Is 
You," Mary J. Blige joins in with a heartfelt R & 
B chorus that fits the melancholy song. "Box in 
Hand" also has Ghostface rapping with Method 
Man, and demonstrates the closeness the group 
feels with lines such as "Do or die/it be 1/ Meta- 
physical Mani holding court for my Wu/ indivis- 
ible clan." 

Ironman isn't so much a "real" solo album, as 
it is a chance for many of the group's members to 
get together and put on a show. On Raekwon's 
Only Built for Cuban Linx, Ghostface became a 
star, so it seems fitting that he is also upstaged by 
Blige and Method Man on his own album. As with 
all Wu-tang efforts, the production value is evi- 
dent, complete with great samples of The Usual 
Suspects and '70s soul ballads. 

Ghostface's Ironman is a great example of the 
Wu-Tang Clan's legacy. This hard-edged and in- 
trospective East Coast rap album is the one to 
get for East Coast fans. 

Treadmill Trackstar: 
Dave Matthews 
meets Nirvana 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

Treadmill Trackstar is a band that can't figure 
out if it wants to play acoustic or electric. But 
this conflict gives the band's debut album, Exces- 
sive Use of The Passive Voice, a hard-edged in- 
tensity, a Dave Matthews-mcets-Nirvana inten- 

Treadmill's style is quite formulaic Most of 
the songs begin with an acoustic intro with the 
rest of the band following seconds later. Singer 
and guitarist Angelo Gianni displays a notable ma- 
turity in his songs. His songs are concise and the 
lyrics possess an ambiguity that could only be 
matched by Michael Stipe. Gianni's raw and 
throaty voice gives the CD an overall dark and 
moody vibe. And thankfully the band does not 
rely on any gimmicks or flabby solos. The songs 
have a passion and energy all their own. 

"Pale The Bright Sun", "Anybody's Hat" and 
"Walking With Madeline" are hallmarks to 
Treadmill's sound. Lyrically, the songs are intro- 
spective. Gianni incessantly questions his role in 
today's society. Musically, the songs are tight and 
seamlessly shift moods. 

Gianni unveils the softer side of his music with 
"Honor Medals", "Leech Boys" and "Beer and 
Cigarettes." All of these songs are acoustic and 
accompanied by a cello. This creates an intimate 
atmosphere and allows Gianni to showcase his 
emotional vocals and guitar playing. 

Treadmill Trackstar is an independent band 
from Columbia, S.C., trying to make its way to 
the top. And it has a CD full of highly original 
rock 'n' roll that might get the group there. Also, 
the song "Shouldn't I Take" is featured on Record 
Exchange's Notes From Home compilation CD. 
The band tours constantly on the East Coast so 
go see them live if you get the chance. 

I guess I'm hooked on the Treadmill, and one 
day they might just be stars.

Ersalesis early start in theater 
makes him a dedicated actor 

He has been in every Tower Players production since 1994 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

Brian Ersalesi is a senior theater 
major from Rutherford, N.J. He will be 
graduating this spring after attending 
High Point for only three years. He is 
minoring in both music and English. 

Brian has been performing his entire 
life, though not formally. He has played 
the piano since age 4, and he acted in 
his first play in the third grade at a com- 
munity theater. He says as a child he 
loved to perform for his family. "I would 
come to the dinner table as a different 
person every night," he says. He loved 
to be the center of attention, and acting, 
singing and playing the piano were 
chances for him to "get out." 

Brian has participated in every uni- 
versity production since he was a fresh- 
man. Most recently he played the male 
lead, Fagin, in Oliver! His next project 
is directing a one-act play, Asleep on the 
Wind, for directing class. Theater was 
the first activity he became involved with 
when he came to 
school, and it was 
here that he met his 
first group of 

"(Theater] has 
helped me grow. 
...You study so 
many different 
characters that 
their positive as- 
pects become a 
part of you." 

Three years and eight plays later, 
Brian has dedicated himself to a num- 
ber of activities which have shaped him 
as an individual. He works at a local ra- 
dio station as a news broadcaster on 
weekday mornings and as a producer on 
weekends lor a live talk show. He also 
hosts the Ilea market where people call 
in with things they need to sell. To work 
this schedule, Brian wakes up at 6 a.m. 
during the week and 4 a.m. on weekends. 
He says, "It keeps me busy, but keeps 
me happy." 

Between classes, plays and work, 
Brian doesn't have much time to stay 
involved on campus. Ever since his 
freshman year, however, he has gone to 
visit his friend Mrs. Peterson who lives 
in a nursing home. Brian said he started 
going to see her his freshman year bc- 

Brian Ersalesi 
without all the 
stage make-up. 


Brian Ersalesi as Fagin in Oliver!. 

fore he got involved with the plays. His 
family is very close, and going away to 
college was difficult for him to adjust to 
at first. Mrs. Peterson became his fam- 
ily away from home. He says, "She's like 
my adopted grandmother. She tells 
people I'm her date." 

Even though it seems like Brian has 
everything going for him, he does not 
know what to expect from the future. 
After graduation, Brian intends to pur- 
sue his dreams by auditioning in New 
York. He says he has to follow his own 
aspirations of acting professionally. "I 
don't want to be 65 years old and tell 
my grandkids to follow their dreams 
when I didn't. I want to be someone who 
talks about what I have done." 

His ideal job would be to act in a situ- 
ation comedy: "It's the same character, 
but it's constantly changing." He likes 
the idea of being able to work with dif- 
ferent people while remaining in the 
same role. 

Even with all his experience, Brian 
has a hard time envisioning his future. 
"I can't even see myself two weeks from 
now. I'm definitely like the old TV show. 
I take it 'One Day at a Time.'" 

He says that the life of an actor takes 
one all over the place and that thinking 
about a future like that is scary. His per- 
spective on life is what motivates him 
to keep acting in the future. 

"If you love what you do, it's not re- 
ally work," he says. "It's the way my 
Mom feels about leaching, and it's the 
way I feel about acting."

Book Review: Behind Blue Eyes 

Townshend's eccentric life captured 
for readers in provocative biography 

By Donald Marriot 

Special to the Chronicle 

Finally, author Geoffrey Giuliano 
has created the first true, well- 
researched biography of the creative 
genius behind one of the most 
influential minds of the last 30 years. 
Giuliano dives deep into the mind and 
attempts to unveil one of the greatest 
performers and composers the world 
has known — Pete Townshend — in 
Behind Blue Eyes. 

Over a span of 30-some years, Pete 
Townshend has been one of rock's most 
worshipped guitarists. He has often 
been classified by fellow critics and 
peers as the thinking man's rock 
musician for his amazing intelligence 
and wit, both on and off the record. 

According to Giuliano, Pete 
Townshend has always been a self- 
conscious rock star, continually 
reexamining his work and rock's role 
in contemporary society. Townshend's 
achievements are with The Who, which 
for many rock historians is the world's 
greatest rock n' roll band. He is indeed, 
as Giuliano puts it, "the elder 

Through his breathtaking falls and 
great triumphs with The Who and the 
bottle, Townshend says what he 
believes to his audience, stares down 
his detractors and rarely apologizes for 
anything, no matter the state or affair. 
His status as rock's living legend is as 
exalted as it ever has been. 

Giuliano explores Townshend's 
often blustery relationship with the 
members of The Who, his often 
pretentious solo career and his battles 
with drugs and alcohol and being a rock 
star, father, musician, creator, 
composer, writer, husband, band leader, 
Who member. 

Giuliano has taken on a subject 
bigger than himself and his words, and, 
knowing that, attempts to cover the 
massive subject in a somewhat linear 
style. He gets away with it but makes 
the text a somewhat laconic look at a 
most remarkable man and a most 
remarkable enigma who cannot truly 
be unveiled in 200+ pages. 
Nevertheless, this is not to say Giuliano 
has not written a good book; it is a great 
book but nothing groundbreaking in the 
genre of biography. 

The author covers a lot of 
information as far as dates, albums' 
context and Townshend's fascination 
with the spiritual leader Meher Baba. 

For those who like music, it is a 
great book to read for the information 
that it carries. One does not have to like 
The Who or Pete Townshend to read 
the book. A non-provincial person, 
wanting to learn, would read Behind 
Blue Eyes for the history of rock music 
and gather a brief knowledge behind 
one of the fathers of the genre. 

A genre that we now call new wave, 
rock, punk or whatever, it all has the 
same roots. Those roots arc Pete 
Townshend; your music is the tree.

Campus Chronicle ** 


New Romeo and Juliet gives 
fresh spin on Bill's old classic 

By Brian Ersalesi 

Special to the Chronicle 

As the movie started, 1 found myself 
prepared to hate director Paz Luhrman's 
version of William Shakespeare's Romeo 
and Juliet. 

Then, as the lights rose and the cred- 
its rolled, I found myself wiping way- 
ward tears into my half-eaten tub of pop- 
corn. Why? The answer is simple. 

You can completely take the story out 
of context, throw it in a futuristic Miami 
Beach setting and you will still have a 
damn good story. This film proves it. 

Set in Verona Beach, our story un- 
folds with gang violence. Montague and 
Capulet are now lifelong corporate con- 
glomerate enemies. The opening shot of 
Verona Beach takes us on a dizzying he- 
licopter ride that skims over the respec- 
tive high-rises that bear the names of the 
warring families. Beneath the towering 
buildings, a scene unfolds of death and 
destruction. Homeless men and women 
litter the street, and inter-gang warfare 
erupts at the local gas station. 

Audience members may find it a bit 
disconcerting that the words spouted 
from the lips of the Montague and 
Capulet boys are in iambic pentameter, 
especially when they come flying in with 
their lowered, souped-up, tinted-win- 
dowed Monte Carlos. But after a while, 
you begin to accept that their irregular 
speech patterns fit in with the irregulari- 
ties of this lair city of Verona Beach.. 

Romeo is played by Leonardo 

DiCaprio. His blond hair, penetrating 
blue eyes and silky smooth skin make 
him a constant target of the Tiger Beat 
magazine crowd. Therefore, it was a 
great surprise that he could act too. He 
may deliver his lines in a California 
drawl, but he does them with such sin- 
cerity and intensity that you can't help 
but love this guy. 

Claire Danes as the lovely Juliet is 
just that. I must say that Danes' expres- 
sive eyes are what captivated me. This 
girl said more with her eyes that she ac- 
tually spoke throughout the entire film. 

Aside from a few clunky ensemble 
scenes between Romeo and his pals, this 
movie was well done. The famous bal- 
cony scene was (thankfully) not cliched. 
Instead, it was transposed into a sexy 
pool scene in which the two lovers first 
declare their love. 

I laughed when Juliet, after being 
called inside by her nurse, attempts to 
leave. As she gets out of the pool, Romeo 
calls to her, "Wilt thou leave me so un- 

I could almost hear the inaudible 
gasp that came from the females in the 
audience. No, ladies, this futuristic 
Romeo is not an insensitive pig. He is 
merely asking Juliet to exchange "thy 
love's faithful vow for mine," which pro- 
duced a sigh of relief and reassurance 
from the ladies in the audience. 

I liked this movie for three simple 
reasons: it was well acted, well executed 
and the story line is timeless. It's that 
simple. I beg thee, get thee to a cinema'

Gibson, Sinise excel in Ransom; 
Russo's chemistry could improve 

Ron Howard's latest thriller 
evokes emotions in the 
ladies and has its share of 
violence for the guys 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

Are you looking for something 
intense? If so, I highly recommend 
seeing Ron Howard's new film, 
Ransom starring Mel Gibson, Rene 
Russo and Gary Sinise. 

Mel's shimmering blue eyes will 
satisfy the intensity factor for all the 
ladies, and there's plenty of violence 
for all of those manly men out there. 
Yup, that's right - it's the perfect date 
movie, something for everyone. 

For anyone who hasn't seen the 
previews on television, this film is 
about a father's struggle to get his son 
back from an expert kidnapper. I say a 
father's struggle because the mother, 
played by Russo, doesn't really do 
much besides blame her husband for 

The kidnapper is asking for $2 
million in ransom which is no problem 
for the wealthy dad who owns an 
airline. The real problem they're faced 
with is whether or not the kidnapper 
will honor his promise to return the son 
alive. After all, why should he? 

The plot twists in this gripping story 

are unbelievable; I never saw them 
coming. Just when you think you've 
got it all figured out, something 
happens to throw everything off kilter. 
Through it all, Gibson gives an 
outstanding performance. His 
emotions and sincerity are so realistic, 
it's almost scary. There isn't anyone 
who will walk out of the theater 
without wishing that his or her dad was 
more like him. 

Sinise also gives an excellent 
performance as the sinister bad guy. 
Russo was disappointing. I was never 
convinced of any real chemistry 
between her and Gibson. I don't 
know — I think Get Shorty just ruined 
her in my eyes. But you won't want to 
miss Donnie Wahlberg's small role. He 
doesn't look anything like his old 
underwear ad in Times Square, but he's 
lovable just the same. 

I found the technological twists to 
this ransom story rather intriguing and 
frightening. Instead of the typical 
ransom phone call, it all begins with 
an e-mail message, complete with 
photos of the son all tied up. Is there 
nothing we can't do these days? 

Well, an artistic ending somewhat 
makes up for all of the mechanical

Fall sports conclude 
with volleyball and 
cross country teams 
winning CVAC titles 


High Point finished another dominant sea- 
son by winning the regular season and tourna- 
ment titles in the Carolinas- Virginia Athletic 
Conference. The Panthers logged an overall 
record of 26-6 and went 1 8-0 in the CVAC. The 
team has now won 30 consecutive conference 

Despite their success, the Panthers failed to 
advance to the NCAA Div. II regionals. The 
CVAC winner is not guaranteed a spot in the 
national tournament. 

Setter Lori Kuykendall, middle hitter 
Tiffanic Wilson and outside hitter Tahirah Dock 
were named to the CVAC All-Tournament team. 
Kuykendall, who was named Tournament MVP, 
led the team in blocking percentage and sets 
per game. Pam Plummer led the team in kill 
efficiency and defensive digs percentage. 

Making the All-Conference Team were 
Dock, Kuykendall and Holly Hendley. Dock 
also earned Freshman of the Year, and Joe 
Ellenburg received CVAC Coach of the Year. 


High Point swept honors at the CVAC 
championship meet Oct. 26. But in the NCAA 
Div. II Southeast Regionals at Kennesaw State 
(Ga.), the men placed 12th in a field of 21. 

For the fifth consecutive year, the men's 
team conference championship went to HPU. 
And for the second straight year, David Duggen 
ran away with the individual championship and 
earned Outstanding Runner of the Year. 

Duggen helped the Panthers easily outdis- 
tance the competition, as the men swept the No. 
1-3 spots. Duggen led the High Point domina- 
tion with a time of 27:06, 17 seconds faster than 
the course record he set last year. Placing sec- 
ond and third were Shon Hildreth (27:57) and 
Christian Kcll (28:44). Also earning all-confer- 
ence honors was Mark Klamerus, who finished 
sixth (29:52).

High Point swept both the team and indi- 
vidual titles at the women's CVAC champion- 
ships Oct. 26. In the NCAA Div. II Southeast 
Regionals at Kennesaw State (Ga.), the women 
finished I Ith in a field of 19. 

Heather Bowers beat her closest competi- 
tion by nearly one full minute to help lead the

team finished the season 7-12. 

women to their second straight CVAC cham- 
pionship. With the men's win, it marked the 
second straight year that High Point swept both 
team titles. Coach Davidson was also named 
Coach of the Year for both teams. 

Bowers earned All-Conference honors and 
the Outstanding Runner of the Year with a win- 
ning time of 20:07. Joining Bowers on the All- 
Conference team were third-place finisher Me- 
lissa Lansberg (21: 12), fourth-place finisher 
Mindy Cox (21:18) and sixth-place finisher 
Katie Powers (2 1:42). 

At Kennesaw State, the women were again 
paced by Bowers, but they fell short of advanc- 
ing to nationals. The team was hurt by the in- 
jury and/or illness related absences of co-cap- 
tain Geisa O'Reilly, Kerry Hallenbeck and

The women's soccer team rounded out the 
season losing in its semifinal game at Queens 
College Nov. 2 by a score of 3-2. This brought 
the women's record to 10-9 total and 7-3 in the 
conference. The Panthers had a majority of 
freshmen on the team, so there is only room 
for improvement. 

The men's season was ended by Mount 
Olive Nov. 5 by a score of 3- 1 . The men, how- 
ever, won in the first round of the CVAC Tour- 
nament Nov. 2 against Coker at home 4-0. The 
men had a 7-12 total record and a 5-5 confer- 
ence record. 

FCA reaches out to students and 
athletes through Christian service 

By Meghan Kovalcik 

Staff Writer 

One of the fastest growing or- 
ganizations on campus is The Fel- 
lowship of Christian Athletes 
(FCA). The mailing list of those 
who have attended has risen from 
24 students to 65 in the past year. 
FCA is not just open to athletes or 
Christians but to everyone on cam- 

"In FCA we are striving to 
reach everyone with the gospel of 
Jesus Christ," said Patrick 
Sullivan, a sophomore from Up- 
per Marlboro, Md. 

During FCA meetings the 
group sings and holds a Bible 
study. The talks are usually stu- 
dent-led with occasional guest 
speakers and videos. FCA is also 
working with other area high 
school branches. 

Meetings are held each semes- 
ter which brings the college and 
high school students together. This 
weekend, a couple of members 
from the leadership team are par- 
ticipating in an FCA outreach re- 
treat for high school students. 

One of the goals of FCA has 

been to talk to several of the ath- 
letic organizations on campus. 
The members talk about FCA and 
tell them about their relationship 
with Jesus. 

The group this year went on a 
Whitewater rafting excursion and 
went ice skating last month. Next 
semester, FCA is planning a 
camping trip and a paintball ex- 
cursion. Dec. 2, the club will hold 
a Christmas party. Next semester, 
FCA is participating in a commu- 
nity service project. It will be vis- 
iting the elderly at Maryfield 
Nursing Home. 

"I like FCA because it's ex- 
actly what it says it is, a time to 
have fellowship with other Chris- 
tians," said Tara Ebner, a fresh- 
man from Brick, N.J. "Through 
this organization alone I have 
made several friendships that I 
know will last forever." 

FCA meets every other Mon- 
day at 7:30 p.m. in the Millis 
Center's Panther Room. FCA 
welcomes anyone interested to 
come to the meetings. Contact co- 
captain Chad Baucom (9337) or 
co-captain Ben Rooke (9530) for 
more information.

Speight and Gross guide men's 
basketball team to early wins 

By Megan Keenan 

Sports Editor 

Living up to its preseason 
No. 1 ranking in the confer- 
ence, the men's basketball 
team won its only exhibition 
game of the season in addition 
to the season opener against 
Anderson College. 

Overall, coach Jerry Steele 
is pleased with the team's play. 
The team has played hard and 
performed well with offensive 
transition. However, the team 
needs to continue to work on 
defense and rebounding. Also 
of concern is learning patience 
in the execution of offensive 

The team defeated a very 
talented group of All-Stars 91- 
81 in an exhibition game. 
Gross scored 26 points and 
Speight collected 24 points 

and 1 8 boards. 

Starting against Anderson 
were Brett Speight, Dave 
Witmer, Jason Panourgias, 
Damond Van Weerdhuizen 
and Tracy Gross. For their first 
game as Panthers, Van 
Weerdhuizen, Panourgias and 
Gross played well. Offen- 
sively, Witmer had a great 
night against Anderson scoring 
24 points. Speight played hard 
and under control throughout 
the game scoring 23 points. 
The Panthers defeated Ander- 
son 93-71. 

With three conference 
games scheduled in the next 
two weeks, the team will have 
to keep working hard and have 
patience as the play develops 
on a more consistent level. 

The team played its first 
conference game against 
Erskine College Wednesday.

Pennix and Curtis lead Panther women 
to victories in West Virginia tournament 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

Strong team defense, great 
rebounding and a record-setting 
effort by Dee Pennix led the 
High Point women's basketball 
team to an easy sweep of the Sa- 
lem-Teikyo Tournament. 

Pennix was the story in 
game one, an 89-50 romp over 
West Virginia Tech. She shot 
1 4-20 from the field, 8- 1 1 from 
three-point range and scored 39 
points, two points shy of tying 
the school record. Her eight suc- 
cessful threes set a new school 

However, the defense was 
not outdone, holding West Vir- 
ginia Tech to 18 points in the 
first half and 28 percent shoot- 
ing for the game. Also in double 
figures were Karen Curtis, with 
21 points and Erin Weather- 
stone, 13 points. 

In the championship game 
against host Salem-Teikyo, 
High Point got a triple-double 
from Karen Curtis in a 70-45 
win. Curtis collected 23 points, 
10 assists, and 10 rebounds". 
Also in double figures were Jan 
Foushee with 12 points and 
Pennix with 10 points. 

The women (2-0) breezed 
through the tournament by an 
average winning margin of 32 
points. The backcourt of Pennix 
and Curtis lead the onslaught by 
combining for 93 points and 24 

l^^t^V^J • 




The women's basketball team started the season by 
winning the Salem-Teikyo Tournament in West Virginia. 


The defense again was 
stingy, giving up only 45 points, 
and again held the opposition to 
28 percent shooting. 

"Excellent rebounding," 
and "standout defense" are what 
drew the greatest praise from 
coach Joe Ellenburg. The Pan- 
thers are taking to heart the idea 
that defense wins champion- 
ships. The women out-re- 
bounded their opponents by 20 
and held the opposition below 
28 percent shooting for the tour- 

Part of the reason for the 
dominance on the boards comes 
from Ellenburg's strategy of 
playing a big lineup. At both 
forward spots and at center, 
Ellenburg used the rotation of 

6-0 Kelly Goode, 5-11 Tiffanic 
Wilson, 6-0 Erin Wcatherstone, 
6-2 Julie Hunter and 6-0 

Ellenburg will be able to 
stick with the rotation through- 
out the season as long as it con- 
tinues to play good defense. Us- 
ing this lineup allows the team 
an advantage in height and an 
extra rebounder against most 
teams. The ability to rebound 
will let the team get the ball to 
the quick backcourt of Curtis 
and Pennix for fast break oppor- 

Saturday at 2 p.m. the 
women play in the Millis Cen- 
ter for the first time in an exhi- 
bition game against Smokey 
Mountain Swarm, a collection 
of former college players.

Hockey's divisional 
races heating up as 
weather cools down 

By Todd "Red" Messner 

Sports writer 

The National Hockey League kicked off an- 
other season early this October and has produced 
another exciting start. Wayne Gret/ky started out 
on lire, leading the league in points with Joe Sacik. 
There had also been a relocation of the Winnipeg 
Jets who have been moved to Phoenix to become 
the Coyotes. 

Thumbs up to Toronto's goalie Felix Potvin 
lor beating Ron Hcxtall, Philadelphia's goalie, 
senseless. The exchange consisted of a dozen 
punches thrown and Hcxtal leaving the ice with a 
gashed and swollen forehead. Hcxtal was repaid 
that night for a year of dirty play, and the alterca- 
tion ended with $12,000 worth of fines between 
the two teams. 

The Florida Panthers arc trying to run away 
with the Atlantic division, racking up 20 points 
in their first 13 games. The Panthers' neighbors 
in Tampa Bay also started off hot, going 5- 1 , but 
have hit the skids recently. The New York Rang- 
ers are trying to gain ground on the Panthers but 
have fallen five points behind and sit in second 
place. The Capitals started off slow, allowing a 
lot of goals, but have since turned things around 
ami are hovering around .500. 

Al this point, the Northeast division is 
anyone's to win. Buffalo, Hartford, Boston, 
Montreal and Ottawa are within two points of each 
other for first place. The Pittsburgh Penguins are 
having all kinds of problems. They are just trying 
now to reach ten points and have a 0-10-1 record 
on the road. The Hartford Whalers got rid of 
Brendan Shannahan who didn't want to be there 
and picked up Keith Pnmeau. This new look puts 
Hartford in a good position for a playoff run. 

The Central division has provided the clos- 
es! race thus far with Dallas, Chicago and Detroit 
deadlocked for first place. Dallas has come out 
with a new attitude and is trying to right the 
wrongs ol the past years since the move from Min- 
nesota. Chicago and Detroit have sat atop this 
division for years and seem to be following the 
same pattern. Chicago let Jeremy Roenick go to 
free agency and are looking for youthful leader- 
ship along with mainstay Chris Celios on defense. 
Detroit will always be competitive with the likes 
of Steve Y/erman and Sergei Federov on the at- 
tack. Brendan Shannahan is happier in the "Mo- 
tor City," and his play shows his love for his new 

The Pacific division is Colorado's to win. 
The Avalanche have a four-point lead and look 
lo breeze into the playoffs. Calgary, Los Angeles 
and San Jose are in a deadlock for second place. 
Hie Anaheim "Miserable" Ducks notched two 
wins in the month of October and all-star Paul 
Kanya has been plagued with injuries. The Ducks 
will drown without him. 

The fastest game on earth has been gaining 
popularity each year, and all the signs say we're 
in for another barn- burner. My early prediction 
lor the Stanley Cup is the Florida Panthers losing 
to the Chicago Blackhawks. For this to come true, 
Eddie Belfour will have to be on top of his garre 
in net, and the Hawks' youth will need to put the 
biscuit in the basket. It will definitely be interest- 
ing come the playoffs in May.

Late-breaking News 

3 thieves arrested, 
could be linked to 
many campus crimes 

From staff reports 

Three highly sought juvenile bur- 
glars accused of breaking into the 
Theta Chi fraternity house were ar- 
rested Wednesday morning. Campus 
security officers apprehended two of 
them in the bathroom of the Old 
Gym. The other was arrested when 
he came back to claim stolen items 
he had lost the night before. 

The thieves, ages 14, 15 and 16, 
were caught possessing stolen items 
from the Theta Chi house. Pending a 
police search of truir homes, mem- 
bers of the trio may be charged with 
stealing a lap-top computer from the 
chapel, a security golf cart and video 
game equipment from the Indigo 
Club, according to the office of pub- 
lic safety. Two weeks ago, they 
wheeled the big-screen TV out of the 
Great Room but lied after being seen 
near the maintenance shed. 

The university will press break- 
ing and entering charges. 

Campus Chronicle staff members 
notified security late Tuesday night 
after seeing three suspicious males 
roaming the Campus Center. Secu- 
rity officers chased the boys down the 
stairs, and one boy dropped a bag full 
of stolen video game equipment. 
Wednesday morning he returned to 
the scene to claim the lost items. 

"Very juvenile. Not profession- 
ally done," Ed Cannady, director of 
public safety, said. 

School says no to Friends 

The gay and lesbian 
support group was denied 
a charter to become a 
campus organization 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

The gay, lesbian and bisexual sup- 
port group. Friends, was declined a char- 
ter and financial support by Dean of 
Students Gart Evans in late November. 
The organization appealed to the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Faculty which 
upheld Evans' decision on Dec. 1 1 . Both 
Friends and faculty have cogent argu- 
ments about why no charter was granted. 

"Friends was in conflict with the 
school's mission statement," Evans said. 
"That does not mean we do not support 
the group. I think there is a need for a 
support group of this kind, but I don't 
think it needs to be officially sanctioned 
by the university. They can get funding 
in other places." 

President Jacob Martinson said, "Ob- 
viously , there were many factors involved 
in the decision made. One factor may 
have been the United Methodist Church's 
social principles stance which recog- 
nizes al I persons as being of sacred worth 
and in need of God's reconciling rela- 
tionship, but docs not condone the prac- 
tice of homosexuality. High Point Uni-

Friends feels that the President mis- 
understood the purpose of their organi- 
zation. "It is not like we engage in homo- 
sexual sex when we meet. Friends is a 
resource and support group for gays.

Burglaries bug fraternity brothers 

After their house was broken into for a third 
time, Theta Chi decided to take some action 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

The Theta Chi fraternity 
house was robbed for the third 
time in 1 8 months over Christ- 
mas break, and house residents ' 
are demanding the school take 

Burglaries over breaks 
have been frequent in the fra- 

ternity houses compared to this 
type of crime in the dorms. 
Theta Chis have decided to take 
action in order to change this 
discrepancy and prevent their 
house from being broken into a 
fourth time. 

The previous two Theta Chi 
burglaries occurred during 1994 
fall break and 1995 Christmas 
break. The Delta Sigma Phi 


house was also broken into 
over 1994 fall break. Another 
break-in was attempted during 
1 995 Christmas break, but, ac- 
cording to senior Cory Fink, 
it was halted by a set of 
double-stacked dressers which 
prevented the thieves from 
getting in through the window.

were notified of the break-in 
shortly before they returned

Inauguration: a crazy time 
for expressing your views 

By Brent Ayers and Gustavo Vieira 

Assistant and Greek Editors 

For many, attending a presidential inauguration is a once in-a- 
lifetime experience. Bill Clinton's message was one of peace, 
unity and hard work to make the 21st century a better one. His

However, the inaugural speech was only a small portion of the 
day's festivities. Prior to the event, big-name-band Better Than 
Ezra played in tents, along with local bands. Tents were filled 
beyond capacity which forced many fans to enjoy the tunes outside 
in the cold. 

Despite all the activities, it was not all fun and support for the

Kudos to HPU for honoring MLK, but 
give students an entire day to celebrate 

To the Editor: 

1 would like to thank the university 
lor at least considering taking two hours 
off Jan. 20 ( 1 1 a.m. - I p.m.) in honor 
of Dr. Martin Luther King. 

lor the last three years, my son and I 
have heen protesting on campus. We 
were trying to get the university to make 
Dr. King's hirthday a whole-day holiday 
like other elementary schools, high 
schools, colleges and universities in this 

Last year was such a disappointing 
year, when it was printed in the (Grccns- 
horo) News and Record that HPU wasn't 
even considering making Dr. King day 
a holiday. This was not only a disrespect- 
ful thing that one could say ahout a man 

as great as Dr. King. It would seem to 
mc if wc can take a whole day out of 
class to honor students (i.e. University 
Honors Day), wc can give Dr. King the 
honor he is due. 

It is my desire to have other students 
of this fine university join me in prov- 
ing to Dr. Martinson that wc arc mature 
enough to handle celebrating this holi- 
day the same way other American citi- 
zens celebrate. 

This will send the right kind of mes- 
sage to small kids like my seven-year- 
old son, Xavier. We must remember that 
this university is the center of our com- 
munity, The Furniture Capital of the

Bring back old registration process 

To the Editor: 

When I heard there were sophomores 
in line to register for classes at 12:30 a.m. 
last semester, I thought they were crazy. 
How hard is it to get a class nowadays? 

Apparently pretty hard to make 
people stay up all night just to make sure 
they get the classes they want. The new 
system may be easier, but is it really 
helpful? For several reasons, I don't think 

First, with the new system, it's much 
harder for professors to keep the class 
from getting overcrowded. It's also 
harder for the teacher to make the course 
schedule until the second week of 

What do students gain by staying up 
all night just to get into courses? They 
spend the next day in classes tired, and 

that doesn't prepare them for a thing, and 
that's if they even go to class. 

The school should return to the old 
system where everyone had a Wednes- 
day off near the end of the semester, and 
students would sign up with the teach- 
ers. It may be used as an excuse to party, 
but at least everyone had a fair shot at 
getting into their classes. 

Teachers could close out a class when 
it was too full, and they could add an- 
other section if necessary. Teachers also 
had more control keeping a student out 
of a class if they felt they weren't ready 
for it. 

The new system seems only to be put 
together to keep classes from being can-

With a few exceptions, this year's Super Bowl 
commercials left audiences feeling pretty blah 

Rob Humphreys 


So I'm watching the Su- 
per Bowl and one thing 
keeps coming to mind 

- these commercials aren't 
doing the trick. 

Nevermind the game. 
Green Bay winning was a 
foregone conclusion. The real action 

- or lack of it - took place during the 
TV timeouts. 

Unfortunately, the bulk of commer- 
cials didn't stack up to years past. 
Seemed like everybody, especially 
Pepsi, was trying way loo hard to come 
up with original material. Too bad most 
of it turned out stale. Anyway, here's 
my annual take on the good, the bad 
and the blah of the most expensive ad- 
vertising in America. 

The Good - 

• Taking top honors was Honda's 
CR-V commercial featuring its new 
all-terrain vehicle romping through the 
pages of USAToday. Simple yet origi- 
nal. Great effects, and best of all, it 
didn't try to be too "cute." 

• Hollywood pumped more money 
into promoting spring movies than 
ever. This in-your-face strategy paid 
off. Now everybody knows some qual- 
ity flicks are on the way. 

• Nissan's air force of crapping pi- 
geons provided a good laugh. These 
feathery poopers could easily replace 
the Budweiser frogs as America's next 
commercial icons. 

The Bad - 

• Just how much money 
did Pepsi spend this year? 
Too much. Every commer- 
cial break featured a seg- 
ment from the kings of Hat 
cola. Not that some of 
Pepsi's $ 1 .2 million, 30-sec- 
ond writeoffs weren't decent 
(i.e. Pepsi bears), but, man, 
it was overkill. 

• Car commercials in general 
should be banned from the Super Bowl 
(Honda and Nissan can stay). As for 
everyone else - Dodge, Porsche, 
Cadillac, etc. - give it up. 

• Medicare Gold came on with 
some segment about health insurance 
for old folks. Come on guys, this is the 
Super Bowl, not the Senior Skins 

The Blah - 

• Nike's Little Penny party featured 
some familiar faces, but it was the shoe 
guru's only commercial. That's too bad. 
Usually they think up some good stuff, 
like This Week in Pee-Wee Football. 

• Visa's piece with the self-depre- 
cating Bob Dole started good, but when 
it turned out to be that "no-ID, no-sale" 
mess, I thought "not this again." 

• Finally, to round out the "blah" 
section, chalk one up to Pepcid AC and 
Immodium AD. Is this strategic place- 
ment or what? Right at the end of the 
fourth quarter. Funny thing. That's 
about the time I - and the New England 
Patriots - were in serious need of those 
tasty products.

Should HPU give Friends a charter? 

Administration needs to recognize diversity 

By Lauren Petrosino 

Special to the Chronicle 

Imagine that you are an ordinary col- 
lege student. Not too hard, right? You've 
got your everyday pressures. Good 
grades, a job, a social life, maybe a girl- 
friend or boyfriend. We're all alike; at 
the same time, however, we're all dif- 
ferent. Different majors, different social 
circles, different pressures. Our wants 
and desires arc what make us different 
from everyone else on earth. Isn't it 
funny how differences can separate 
people to the point that you can be 
looked down upon for something you 
have no control over? 

Being gay isn't something that you 
wake up and think, "Hey, that's what I 
want to be when I grow up. I want to be 
a member of a highly persecuted group 
and be mocked for loving someone. "It's 
something that you struggle with for 
years. You can live in denial for most of 
your life. Coming out to yourself is hard 
enough. Coming out to your friends and 
family can be a nightmare. Not know- 
ing whether they will embrace you or 
desert you is agony. Is it any wonder that 
people faced with this situation would 
want to feel support? 

The Friends organization was started 
unofficially last February as an interest 
session and gradually grew into a group 
of people who fell the need for support 
from their peers and to spread the mes- 
sage of tolerance that is needed by the 

gay community. It is now over 20 mem- 
bers strong and growing. It has been es- 
timated that 10 percent of the world 
population is homosexual. This means 
that at a school of 2,600 students, up to 
260 could possibly be gays or lesbians. 
This does not include the members of 
the heterosexual population that would 
join to support their friends. 

Friends isn't a group that is purely 
made up of gays, lesbians and bisexu- 
als. About 50 percent of the members are 
straight. By belonging, they show their 
support of their friends who have made 
the decision to be honest with themselves 
and with others. 

There are groups on campus that cel- 
ebrate differences. Baptist Student Union 
celebrates religion. Black Cultural 
Awareness celebrates heritage. Why is 
there debate over an organization that 
would serve such a potentially large seg- 
ment of the population of the university 
and teach us to respect and see beyond 
our differences. It has been said, "Times 
arc changing. 10 years this won't be 
an issue." 

The fact is that in 1997 this is an is- 
sue that must be addressed. If not us, 
who? If not here, where? And if not now, 
when? We need to address the future as 
if it were tomorrow. That is what makes 
us leaders. In seeking a charter, we are 
not asking for special privileges. We are 
asking for what has been granted to so 
many others, the right to be recognized 
as a vital part of High Point University. 


An event that shocked the world 

By Chris Tate 

Special to the Chronicle 

Years ago, astronauts were larger than 
life. Each one was a living Buck Rogers. 
They flew in spaceships and faced the 
unknown without a touch of fear. They 
waved and smiled before taking off. Who 
would have known that Buck Rogers 
could die? 

The space shuttle Challenger ex- 
ploded Jan. 28, 1986. It seems like a 
lifetime ago. Soon, that day became as 
infamous as the day President Kennedy 
was assassinated. 

I always hear stories from my peers 
about what they were doing when the 
shuttle exploded. It seems like everyone 
was watching it at school and was dis- 
missed early. I was in school that day, 
but my classmates and I never watched 
it. To the teachers, the shuttle launch was 
as common as a person driving a car 
down the street. 

My mother told me what had hap- 
pened after school. After we exchanged 
greetings, she said the shuttle exploded. 
I really don't remember what my reac- 
tion was. Since I was nine, I didn't really 
understand why this incident was so 
shocking. I'd seen spaceships explode in 
Star Trek and Star Wars. 

My attitude changed after seeing a 
replay of the explosion on television. I 
was awestruck. I not only felt sorry for 
the astronauts, bul I also felt sorry for 
their families. 

The smoke in the sky will forever be 
etched in my mind. Another part of the 
footage that will haunt me forever is the 
voice from mission control. After the 
explosion, the voice said something like, 

"We have a malfunction." His voice was 
so stoic, devoid of feeling. 

When I first heard this nameless 
person's voice, I felt so angry. It was as 
if he didn't care about the doomed crew. 
He didn't even sound shocked or 
surprised.The explosion was replayed 
on every channel over and over. After a 
while, I was so tired of watching it. I was 
sure everyone in the world had seen it. At 
this point, the media were treating the 
Challenger tragedy as entertainment. I 
was sickened by it. 

Aside from all the tributes and sad- 
ness, everyone wanted to know how this 
tragedy occurred. It seemed as if every- 
one at NASA was pointing fingers at one 
another. I, like many other people, felt 
the accident was caused by human error. 
I figured that somebody forgot to tighten 
a screw. 

Luckily, it wasn't one person at fault. 
I never really understood the whole ex- 
planation, but I heard that the explosion 
happened because of a faulty 0-ring 
(whatever that is). Other explanations 
were offered, but the 0-ring explanation 
was the most logical. 

I often think about the crew of the 
Challenger. I still wonder if the crew 
realized that something was wrong as 
they flew toward space. Maybe it's best 
not to know. The whole incident is sad 
enough as it is. 

Buck Rogers did die on the fateful 
day in 1986, but death couldn't stop him. 
As a true superhero, he came back to life 
in 1988. He still flies in space today, 
whenever an astronaut soars off in a 
space shuttle. His death was a grim re- 
minder that there are risks when it comes 
to the accumulation of knowledge. 

School's reputation and faith are factors 

By Josh Kitzpatrick 

Special to the Chronicle 

When you look around at other big 
schools, you will see a lot of things we 
have at High Point and also a lot of things 
we don't have. 

We have fraternities, sororities, char- 
tered clubs and sports teams. Big schools 
have some of the same ones and some 
we don't. Yet at the same time there are 
organizations which don't have charters 
which wonder why they don't. 

Of course, this is the argument of 
Friends, the organization of gay, lesbian 
and bisexual students and people who 
are just "friends." Some may feel that 
they are whining and crying because they 
don't feel accepted, but the truth is there 
are other reasons why they are unable to 
get a charter. 

The school is a private institution 
affiliated with the Methodist Church, and 
for the most part, a lot of people who 
are Christian - especially in this part of 
the country -don't agree with what they 

think of as a "deviant" lifestyle. 

So if the school were to give a char- 
ter to a group that the church deems to 
exhibit "sinful" behavior, it would lose 
money. Now some people may take of- 
fense to this, but a top priority to this 
university is business. HPU has to do 
what it can to keep what money it does 
receive and use it for our collective edu- 

Also, many of the trustees may not 
like the school giving money to an orga- 
nization of this type. Even donors may 
dislike it and pull their money out. 

The school is here for everyone, and 
no one is saying that Friends can't meet 
or have activities, but at the same time it 
is the Bible Belt, and some people don't 
accept this kind of lifestyle. 

We aren't a school with state fund- 
ing supported by tax dollars. The trust- 
ees and the school's reputation among 
wealthy donors influence all the deci- 
sion-making. After all, the school has to 
be able to afford bills and buildings 
somehow, and tuition alone won't do it. 

By denying the charter, the administra- 
tion is denying us this recognition. 

President Martinson has said that the 
purpose of Friends goes against the mis- 
sion statement of the university. Isn't that 
odd? When going through orientation, 
the student body is told that the mission 
of High Point University is to teach di- 
versity. Is that what they are teaching us? 
By discluding a group whose main pur- 

pose is to teach tolerance and love, they 
are sending out mixed messages and 
sending a message of intolerance to the 
world. Our organization's efforts to gain 
a charter have become a national news 
story. I would rather be proud of having 
attended a university that is known for 
supporting its students than be ashamed 
of a school that in known for persecut- 
ing those it does not understand.

Scenario: Five sailors and a monkey are shipwrecked on an is-

sleep and divide the coconuts among themselves the next morning. 

During the night, Sailor A wakes up and decides to divide up the 
coconuts into live equal piles, but there is one coconut left over. He 
gives the coconut to the monkey. Sailor A takes his coconuts and hides 
them. He then takes the other sailors' coconuts and puts them back 
into one pile. 

A little later, Sailor B wakes up, and he decides to divide the co- 
conuts up into live equal piles, but there is one left over. He gives that

they split the remaining coconuts among themselves. The pile splits up evenly among (he men and the

Scott commemorates Dr. King 

By Kristen Long 

News Editor 

The university honored Dr. 
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day hy 
having a special lecture from 
Dr. Julius S. Scott Jr. and sing- 
ing from Genesis, a gospel 

The Jan. 20 lecture hegan 
with Genesis singing "You Are 
My Source," "Stop For a Mo- 
ment" and "Hallelujah." 

Junior Melanie Kellam en- 
joyed the music so much that 
she began clapping and singing 
also. She said, "That was the 
best part of the lecture. Genesis 
did a really good job." 

The gospel choir, composed 
ot university students, is an out- 
growth of Black Cultural 
Awareness (BCA). Reverend 
James Brown volunteers his 
time as director and pianist. 

Alter the singing, Scott, 
president ot Wiley College and 
former executive director of the 
Martin Luther King Center for 
Non-violent Social Change, 
urged students to celebrate the 
birth of King. He said, "This 
should not just be an idle time 
or a mere holiday." 

He outlined King's goals by 
quoting from the "I Have A 
Dream" speech. Then, he asked, 
"Are we any closer in 1997 to 
the fulfillment of his dream?" 

This question was answered 
when Scott proceeded to cite

heaped upon grief." However, 
he did point out that today's so- 
ciety has come a long way since 
the death of Martin Luther King 
Jr. in 1968. 

Scott ended his speech by 
saying, "I urge everyone to be 
committed to peace. His dream 
must be fulfilled." 

Joy Rogers, a member of 
Genesis and BCA, thought that 

more students should have at- 
tended the lecture. She said, 
"Those students that chose not 
to come, chose not to keep the 
dream alive."

Alpha Phi Omega hopes to continue 
many service projects this semester. Al- 
ready in January we have gone to visit 
children in a group home and visited the 
animal shelter as well as taking tickets at 
the basketball games. 

Rush began for us Jan. 14 with an 
Open House where we had many pro- 
spective pledges show their interest. 
During the week we had service projects 
to show the pledges what we like to do. 
We hope that all those who receive bids 
will pledge. 

Last semester our organization put in 
606 hours and 5 minutes of service to the 
community, school and nation. We hope 
to top that this semester and have well 
over 1200 hours for the year. 

Congratulations goes out to all of our 
new officers: President, Jen Pahner; Ser- 
vice Vice-President, Brian Davis; Mem- 
bership Vice-President, Melissa Bogle;

Due to continuing concern and in- 
creasing demands by students for a wider 
variety of foods, there has been a major 
adjustment in the meal plan and dining 

Aramark, the university'sdining ser- 
vice, along with help from the SGA. 
capitalized on the idea to put in a food 
pavilion and campus store last fall. 

There are several possible meal plan 
options for both residents and commuter 
students. Residents can chose either a 
14-meal per week plan plus 100 Panther 
Points or a 19-meal per week plan with 
no Panther Points. 

Each Panther Point equals one dollar 
and can be used in either the conve- 
nience store (The Panther Pantry) or in 
the food pavilion (The Point). When a 
purchase is made in either of these places, 
the amount is deducted from the student's 
account, and the student's balance is 
available upon request when the pur- 
chase is made. 

The Point offers Blimpie Subs, Krispy 
Krcme Doughnuts. Starbucks Gourmet 
Coffee, Grille Works. It/a Pizza, Easy 

Goes Take Out and fresh bagels. The 
Panther Pantry offers much of the vari- 
ety of a chain convenience store but has 
the advantage of being located on cam- 
pus, conveniently next to the newly in- 
stalled Wachovia ATM. The Pantry of- 
fers everything from cigarettes, candy 
and microwavcable meals to a wide se- 
lection of personal items. 

The Panther Pantry is located next to 
the safety office and is open weekdays 8 
a.m. - 1 1 p.m. and on weekends 3-11 
p.m. The Point is located where the old 
snack bar used to be. It has been remod- 
eled to fit the new menu selections and 
includes seating areas, a new 29-inch 
television and speaker set-up inside as 
well as on the deck. The Point has the 
same hours as the Pantry, while the caf- 
eteria hours remain the same. 

This new system conforms to the 
variety of needs expressed by students. 
Students who eat at different times than 
the cafeteria hours are positively affected 
by this new plan. 

SGA President Will Thompson said, 
"The increase of students at the SGA 
meetings who expressed their concerns 
about the old meal system definitely did 
not go unnoticed." 

Theta Chis think school is moving too slowly on burglary issue 

CRIME, continued from front page 

from break When they came back, they 
decided to involve the local media and 
gave their story to The High Point En- 
terprise, The ( Greensboro )AVu\v & 
Retort! and Fox 8. According to Theta 
Chi Chad Thompson, the residents hope 
the media attention convinces the school 
thai steps should be taken to prevent 

"I don't want to say the school isn't 
doing anything." says Thompson, "but 
things are moving too slowly." 

Precautions being taken 

Although nothing was done after the 
first two break-ins, since the Theta Chis 
have been back from Christmas break, 
motion-detecting lights have been in- 
stalled at the north and south ends of the 
house, and trees on the cast side of the 
house have been trimmed back to elimi- 
nate hiding places. 

Ed Cannady, head of campus secu- 
rity, says, "Considering where the fra- 
ternity houses are, on the fringe, there 
haven't been that many |break-ins). It's 

very unfortunate that the Theta Chi 
house has been broken into three limes. 
Because of the bushes and poor lighting 
in the area of the Theta Chi house, it's 
very easy to get in and out ol there with- 
out being seen." 

Cannady says that on the night of the 
break-in, Dec. 20, the Theta Chi house 
was checked at 8 p.m.. When security 
officers on patrol checked it again at 
10:50 p.m., they discovered it had been 
broken into. Additional help was called, 
and the house was surrounded, searched 
and found empty. 

"When finding a break-in like that," 
says Cannady, "you never know whether 
they're still inside or not. So we took 
those precautions." 

Three juveniles suspected of the 
break-ins were arrested on campus 
Wednesday morning. 

After the first two break-ins, the need 
for additional lighting was noted in 
maintenance reports, but the motion-de- 
tecting lights were not installed until af- 
ter the third burglary. 

"The campus is lit up well," says 
Cannady. "There are some dark spots. 
Wc have been studying methods for im- 
proving lighting. It's an ongoing thing. 
Why the lights hadn't been installed in 
the 'Theta Chi house, I don't know." 

One student's story 

This year is the first lime senior Ja- 
son DeCourccy has lived in the frater- 
nity house Aware of the previous break- 
ins, he took a number of valuable items 
home with him including his computer, 
TV and VCR. His phone and answering 
machine, which he left, were stolen. 

"They've done a good job in re- 
sponding to |the break-in). They put up 
the lights and stuff. They're not just sit- 
ting around," says DeCourcey. "I wish 
they had done it before, like after the first 
one, but it's too late, so at least they're 
doing it now." 

Cannady says his 1997 budget report 
includes plans to implement a number 
of new security techniques, money al- 
lowing. In these plans are a closed-cir- 
cuit television monitoring system of the 
entire campus, door alarms in the frater- 

nity houses and a bike patrol. 

This ordeal isn't over yet for mem 
hers of the Theta Chi house. After con- 
tacting the media, writing a letter to 
President Jacob Martinson and meeting 
with him to discuss the burglary, they 
had to discuss reimbursement with Bob 
Hayes, director of financial affairs, and 
Garl Evans, dean of students. 

"I love High Point University," says 
Chad Thompson. "I think it's a good 
school, but there are a lot of things that 
go on that no one knows about. We didn't 
[contact the media) to be big shots. We 
did it because it's the third time." 

Thompson thinks that incidents like 
repeat burglaries at the fraternity houses 
are a reflection on the university. He says 
it makes people think, "What kind of a 
school would let this happen?" 

"It's an ongoing frustration - how 
you can guarantee that that house will 
not be broken into again," Cannady says. 
"I can't, the police department can't, this 
university can't. So we will continually 
work toward improving, locking, light- 
ing and patrol to prevent this from hap- 
pening again."

Campus Chronicle 7 

Millis ghosts scare many students into belief 

Seniors Brad Harper and Rob Ferguson had 
an eerie encounter with a spooky spirit of old 

By Annie Miller 

Special to the Chronicle 

All the residents of Millis Dormitory 
had left for the summer. So why did se- 
niors Brad Harper and Rob Ferguson 
return to Rm. 2 1 8 three times to turn off 
the light and close the window? 

"Some of my friends had told me 
about a ghost that haunted that room," 
Harper said, "but I had always thought 
of it as just a ghost story." 

Before the fraternities moved into 
houses, they had occupied Millis. Ac- 
cording to the story, there was a party in 
Rm. 218. A girl, sitting in the window, 
lost her balance and fell to her death af- 
ter her boyfriend let go of her legs. 

"The story goes that she still haunts 
Millis and that room, waiting for her 
boyfriend to return so that she can get 
revenge," Harper said. 

This is no longer "just a ghost story" 
to Harper or Ferguson, who were in 
charge of closing Millis last spring. 

After locking every room in Millis, 
they walked back to their house. Harper 
looked up at the dorm and saw a light on 
in a room on the second floor. They went 
up to Rm. 218, turned off the light and 
locked the door. 

The next day, they saw the light on 
in the same room. "We were both ner- 
vous about going up there again because 
no one else had a key to that room," 
Harper said. "But we went anyway and 
turned off the light and locked the door." 

When the same thing happened later 
that night, both Harper and Ferguson 
were suspicious. "We freaked out this 
time," said Harper. "This was absolutely 
ridiculous. Our curiosity overcame us 
and we decided to check it out again." 

They went back into Rm. 218 and 
looked around. This time they noticed 
that the window was wide open. They 
were sure it was locked before. Neither 
had any explanation. Harper and 
Ferguson were the only ones who had a 
key to that room. 

"I had never believed in ghosts be- 
fore I had to close Rm. 2 1 8," Harper said. 
"Now I don't know what to believe." 

Senior Melissa Lansberg has lived in 
Rm. 2 1 8 for the last two-and-a-half years 
but has experienced no supernatural 
trouble or occurrences. In fact, Lansberg 
was unaware of the ghost story when the 
Chronicle contacted her. 

"I've lived in this room since my 
sophomore year and I haven't had a prob- 
lem," she said. "As far as the person that 

The ghost of Stephanie haunted a room on the Phi 
Mu hall where she is rumored to have died years ago 

By Rob Humphreys 


It's 3 a.m. last spring and Nicole 
Pizzo awakens to hear her door handle 
jiggling. Thinking it's a dream, Nicole 
lies down only to hear the same noise. 

"Who is it?" Nicole and her room- 
mate ask. 

"Stephanie," the voice says. 

"Stephanie who?" 

"Stephanie," the voice answers. 
"Let me in, I'm cold. Let me in. Let 
me in." The voice keeps repeating. 

By now, things are getting odd in 
Rm. 208. Nicole and her roommate 
know of only one Stephanie on the hall, 
but they know this is not her. 

Now the door begins to shake vio- 
lently. The person - or being - outside 
the door is pounding non-stop. Nicole 
looks under the door but sees no feet 
and no shadow. 

Terrified, Nicole turns on the light 
- the door still shakes and the voice 

continues to plead. Phone calls are 
made to neighboring rooms, but no one 

Suddenly the racket stops. The 
ghost leaves but can be heard pacing 
the halls - again, no shadow is seen. 

"Even if someone was standing to 
the side of the door we'd be able to see 
a shadow," Nicole says. 

Oddly enough, fellow hall mem- 
bers swear they didn't hear a thing the 
next morning. To this day, the mystery 
remains unsolved. 

The legend goes that some time 
ago a drunk girl got alcohol poisoning 
and died in her sleep - in Millis Rm. 
208 of all places. Three guesses what 
her name was. 

So far, Stephanie, who Nicole jok- 
ingly describes as a "bad ghost," has 
not returned to haunt any more Phi 
Mus. Nowadays, Nicole laughs about 
the strange episode, but back then, she 
was scared enough to move out of the 
room for good. 

died, I've heard that story. But I haven't 
heard any haunting story." 

Other accounts say a drugged-up guy 
named Charlie fell to his death in Millis, 
not a girl. Either way, Lansberg was 

caught off guard by Harper and Ferguson 
linking the ghost's paranormal activity 
to her room . 

"I didn't know she fell out my win- 
dow," Lansberg said. 


Croatian Crnojevic mourns his torn homeland 

By Zach Johnston 

Staff Writer 

Denis Crnojevic is an aspiring inter- 
national student from Canada, but the 
recent break-up of his homeland, Yugo- 
slavia, has changed his life forever. 

Serbs and Croats battled each other 
in a bloody revolution, and Denis 
changed from a 23-year-old senior wor- 
ried about grades and beer into a frantic 
member of the former Yugoslavia, con- 
cerned with death, disgrace and hate. 

"My family has been hurt, I have lost 
friends and friendships - nothing good 
has come from this war," said Denis, 
whose Croatian cousin was murdered 
while he watched his twin daughters play 
in a sprinkler in the front yard. A Serbian 
soldier gunned him down after asking 
the Croat his nationality. 

When Crnojevic (pronounced sir- 
noy-a-vich) returned to Canada, family 

friends of more than 1 years refused to 
speak with him because of his Croat af- 
filiation. "They gave me the cold shoul- 
der," Denis said. "I wish they would re- 
alize the war is over there, not over here." 

Yes, life after the war is different for 
Denis and his former countrymen. His 
homeland has been destroyed and di- 
vided, and he probably never will be able 
to return. Denis' parents also feel the loss 
of their country as they gather bits of 
information once a week about their 

"My parents sit by the radio every 
Sunday to listen to underground mes- 
sages from Yugoslavia and cry because 
they know they can never go home." 

"It's always been Yugoslavia to me," 
Denis said. "You know I can be killed in 
some places for saying that now?" 

He remembers when Sarajevo, the 
Bosnian capital, hosted the 1984 Winter 
Olympics and Yugoslavia gained inter- 

national esteem. It was a country on the 
move. Denis was proud of his European 
heritage. That has all changed now. The 
bloodshed can never be forgotten. 

"When the war happened," Denis 
recalled, "any news that came on about 
the war, I turned the channel. I am 
ashamed of my country and feel dis- 
graced to be a part of that. 

"There are 400,000 children with no 
mother or father who know their parents 
were killed either by Serbs or Croats. 
They will grow up knowing this atroc- 
ity, and we will have no peace of mind 
in our lifetime." 

Denis plans to become involved in 
business after he graduates in May. 
"Even when I worked Furniture Market," 
he said, "I heard a man speaking my na- 
tive language ... so we began talking, and 
when he realized I was Croatian, he 
turned around and never spoke to me 

Denis Crnojevic, pictured with 
Heather Haberfield, laments the 
civil war in the former Yugoslavia. 

Denis hopes he and his former coun- 
trymen will forget this horrific civil war 
and be able to coexist in peace. He prays 
the murder and hatred will end, but he 
knows he and his country will never be 
the same. 

McCaslin ready to teach, mentor in UK 

History professor Richard McCaslin 
will teach two classes in Oxford, 
England next semester. 

By Danielle Rotella 

Special to the Chronicle 

Every fall, a group of students and a 
faculty member have the opportunity to 
explore a semester abroad. This fall, Dr. 
Richard McCaslin, associate professor 
of history, is traveling across the Atlan- 
tic to Oxford, England. 

McCaslin and a group of students 
will be studying at Westminster College, 
an affiliate of Oxford University, about 
five miles outside Oxford. 

"I've never been to Europe, so this is 
my big chance," McCaslin said. "I've 
always liked to travel and see new 
places, so this is a wonderful opportu- 
nity for me to go somewhere I couldn't 
ordinarily afford." 

McCaslin also will take his wife, 
daughter and grandson, who will be a 
year old, on the trip. 

McCaslin will teach one or two his- 
tory classes while at Westminster Col- 
lege, either a survey of U.S. History or 
Civil War and Reconstruction. 

"This class is designed to be attrac- 
tive to British students at Westminster 
and to the students from High Point," 
said McCaslin, who will also be respon- 
sible for the High Point students. "I think 
the students that go will need a little ex- 
tra care and attention. Part of this expe- 
rience is for students to check out the 
culture of another country, not to sit in 
the library all day - but that's important, 

"I'll be their mentor, their big brother, 

their parent-surrogate, whatever they 
need," he added. "That's my primary 
duty while I'm over there. I think teach- 
ing comes second." 

The first countries on McCaslin and 
his family's personal travel list are Scot- 
land and Ireland. "We'd love to find a 
representative city in Italy to visit and 
experience Oktoberfest, possibly in 
Munich, Germany, and visit Paris and 
London," McCaslin said. 

"This will be an opportunity for me 
to represent the university well," he 
added. "The thought is that when you 
come back from England that your ex- 
periences will enhance you as a profes- 
sor. The idea is not only to give the stu- 
dents an experience, but to enhance the 
professor, too."

Ladies, take it from me, 
don't obey these rules 

By Brian Krsalesi 

Stalf Writer 

Admittedly, I wasn t too thrilled when asked to 
review The Rules. I mean, what possible use could I 
have lor "lime tested secrets lor capturing the heart 
of Mr. Right.'" 

Then I realized the wonderful coup I could stage 
on (he entire female population. Now, I, your aver- 
age Joe Shmoe, could infiltrate the minds of women 
everywhere and find out what they really want. I 
could be what every woman is looking for. 

The truth, I discovered, is that I wouldn't want 
any of the women who follow The Rules. 

Sadly, the basic premise of this 171-pagctome is 
that you, as a woman, must lie in order to get a man. 
The Rules tells you that you must pretend to be 
something that you arc not so a man will fall madly 
in love with you. 

As a man, I don't want a woman who is going act 
like someone else. Sooner or later, the curtain is 
dropped. What happens after the novelty of the new 
relationship has worn off? When docs the woman 
begin acting like herself? Is it really possible that a 
woman could fool a man into believing that she is a 
beautiful, shy, wondrous creature and then turn into 
a conniving shrew afterdate number six? There is 
something to be said for "being yourself," but, sadly, 
this instruction manual doesn't say it. 

Instead it says absurd things like, "Doing what 
you want to do is not al ways in your best interest. On 
a job interview, you don't act like yourself." I'd like 
to know whom you act like, then. If this rule were 
true, I would be down in Orlando telling the top brass 
at Disney World that I would work for much less than 
Michael liisner, but I could act just like him. 

The point is, why would any man want to date 
someone who is just putting on airs and not being 
truthful to either herself or him? If I ask a girl where 
she wants to go to eat and she doesn't have an 
opinion, I don't take that for being coy, or mysteri- 
ous. I just think she's being ridiculous. Similarly, if 
I ask a girl to a seafood restaurant for dinner and she 
hates seafood but doesn't tell me because she wants 
to please me, I have to wonder if she has a mind of her 

To me, intellectuality is sexy, and The Rules tells 
women to hide their intellectuality and let the men 
doininate. Being able to suggest a place for dinner or, 
more seriously , arguing with me about why I shouldn't 
vote for Bill Clinton is sexy. It demonstrates to me 
that the woman I am lucky enough to be sharing 
dinner with is not afraid to speak her mind. They say 
that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. So use it — 
even on dates. 

So, to those who follow rules like No. 16, "Don't 
tell him what todo" and "Don't overwhelm him with 
your career triumphs. Try to let him shine," I say 
forget all of The Rules, and just be yourself. If you 
want to talk about the day your cat vomited up a 
three-pound hairball, go ahead. If the guy freaks out, 
then he obviously wasn't the one for you. Remember 
he is not the only guy in the world. Somewhere 
there's a guy who can regale you with stories about 
the time his cat vomited up a three-pound hairball, 
and then he knitted a sweater out of it.

Time-tested Secrets 
for Getting What You 
Want from Women — 
Without Marrying 



The Code 

This amusing response to 
The Rules is chock-full of 
chauvinistic nonsense 

By Heather Sitler 

Staff Writer 

Just as AT&T wants you to know its code, Nate 
Penn and Lawrence LaRose want every male in 
America to know theirs. Penn and LaRose arc 
authors of The Code, a controversial book written 
in retaliation to the surprisingly successful book 
The Rules. While The Rules is based on grandma's 
old-fashioned principles concerning relationships, 
The Code is based on a rather demented Don Juan- 
of-thc-'9()s principle. 

The authors claim that their book is chock-full 
of "time-tested secrets for getting what you want 
from women - without marrying them." I found 
it to be overflowing with tons of bull and a 
cornucopia of male chauvinism. Their goal? To 
arm every male in America with the ability to get 
lots of sex without the commitment. 

Hello? What man is dumb enough to think that 
there is a woman out there dumb enough to fall 
for this? If the pair actually does exist, then I think 
they deserve each other. But it's well into the '90s, 
and by now most women can smell a 
noncommittal sex fiend a mile away. I actually 
think that they might offer that course as a follow 
up to sex education in some high schools. 

However, whether for fun or fornication, the 
code is quite amusing. Not being a feminist or 
women's lib freak may have something todo with 
my tolerance for it. I mean, I could actually put this 
book on my privileged list of page-turners. Just 
because I think it's a bunch of crap doesn't mean 
that I didn't find it amusing. 

The theme throughout is that the man is the 
consumer and the code is the product guaranteed 
to find him lots of victims, uh, dates. It reveals 
where a man can find the prey, the most common 
watering holes being the gym and the mall, and 
even takes it one step further by telling the 
consumer where to take the prey on a date. It 
includes everything: what to say, or in this case, 
not say, what to wear, even what to make for 
dinner, should he decide to be domestic. 

Also included arc some lips on how to get in 
(and out) of a relationship. This could be loosely 
translated into "what to do when you need sex and 
when you've had enough." Getting in: Introduce 
her to famous or powerful or accomplished people 
you know. Getting out: Introduce her to your 
friends. It offers answers to the "Do I look fat?" 
question and employs the importance of man's best 
friend. ("You'll Never Love Me as Much as You 
Love That Dog": Canine Meditations.) It has all 
of the angles covered. 

Although this book was obviously written for 
a good laugh, I would still love to see a guy gullible 
enough to try to execute the code. I mean, I've 
always wanted to witness a ritual suicide. The last 
page of the book is an emergency card to be filled 
out just in case the code backfires and the reader 
suffers excessive injuries from his conquest. This 
book really does merit a surgeon general's

Going Greek: it's your prerogative 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

Going Greek is an issue that many 
students ponder when arriving at this 
school. Students are faced with nega- 
tive and positive remarks about being 
affiliated with a Greek organization. 
Remember nothing is perfect. 

It is commonly portrayed that all 
Greeks are nothing but beer guzzlin' 
and self-centered party animals. That 
may be the case at some schools, but 
there are many advantages to the Greek 
system at this university. 

Looking back to my freshman year, 
being part of a fraternity was not on 
my agenda, especially after hearing 
constant stereotypes about the Greeks. 

But who was I to believe? I wanted 
to find out for myself, so I signed up 
for rush. I rushed with an open mind, 
not being persuaded by all the stereo- 
types I had previously heard. 

Today, one year after my decision 
to pledge myself to a fraternity, I can 
honestly say I am not a different per- 
son. Being a pledge did not take away 

my identity or beliefs. I did not lose or 
betray friends just because I was now 
part of a fraternity. 

The partying is always an issue. But 
there is more to the Greek system on 
this campus than just partying. Greeks 
on this campus are constantly involved 
in the community along with other or- 

"Buying your friends." That is 
probably the most commonly heard 
phrase when one is thinking of going 
Greek. The simple reason these orga- 
nizations need money is to sustain their 
functions and pay national headquar- 
ters. I am not going to lie to you and 
say that most of these functions are not 
parties, because they are. 

I cannot sit here and predict what 
an individual will gain from his/her af- 
filiation in a greek system. From my 
personnal experience, you will only get 
what you put in to it. 

The decision is your own. Some 
take it and others pass it by. It will not 
change your life or make you a better 
person. If you join, great, and if you 
do not, we will see you at the houses.

Concert 'Review 

New Edition Tour gives Coliseum crowd R&B's finest 

Keith Sweat, 702, BBD, Bobby Brown, Blackstreet and New 
Edition were among the sensational performers 

By Melanie Kellam 

Staff Writer 

The New Edition Reunion Tour kept 
the crowd at the Greenshoro Coliseum 
on its feet from heginning to end. 

The concert hegan with the new fe- 
male R&B group, 702. These ladies got 
the crowd going with the performance 
of their hit single, "Sleelo." 

702 was followed hy one of the most 
popular R&B male groups, Blackstreet. 
This group kept the crowd excited with 
the performance of its new hit single, 
"No Diggity." Blackstreet proceeded to 
seduce the crowd with the performance 
of its first hit single, "Before I Let You 

Go." Blackstreet gave the crowd a per- 
formance that was hard to follow, hut that 
wasn't the case. 

Keith Sweat, one of the top male 
R&B artists, got the crowd all hot and 
hothcrcd with his sultry, seductive love 
songs. They included hits from each of 
his alhums: "Make It Last Forever," 
"How Do You Want It" and "Nobody," 
his duet with Kut Klose memher Athena 
Cage. "That was enough for my money," 
one of the audience members screamed. 
"Can it get any better than this?" The 
answer was yes. 

New Edition was last but certainly 
not least. They appeared on stage one- 
by-one from the image of a three-story 

mansion. When they all reached the 
stage, New Edition began singing songs 
from its new album. Home Again. The 
crowd was out of control. People who 
had floor seats ran to the stage just to be 
near New Edition. After New Edition 
performed its new hit, "Hit Me Off," they 
went off the stage. Each member of New 
Edition then performed songs from their 
individual careers. 

Bobby Brown stunned the audience 
when he included his son in his perfor- 
mance as a dancer. He also stunned the 
audience when he serenaded his wife, 
Whitney Houston, with one his hits 
"Tenderoni." Bobby then brought 
Whitney out on the stage. The crowd was 
ecstatic to see Whitney. 

Michael Bivens, Ronnie Devoe and 
Ricky Bell better known as BBD came 
out next. They kept the crowd on its feet 

with the performance of their career hits, 
"Poison" and "Do Me Baby." 

Ralph Tresvant came next and wooed 
the crowd with his smooth style, while 
performing his hit, "Sensitivity." 

Johnny Gill kept the wooing going 
with the sexy performance of his hit, 
"My, My, My." 

Following Johnny, the original mem- 
bers of New Edition: Ronnie. Bobby, 
Ricky, Mike and Ralph performed hits 
from their first album. They included: 
"Popcorn Love," "Mr. Telephone Man" 
and "Cool It Down." 

The crowd, still on its feet, screamed 
uncontrollably throughout the whole 
time New Edition performed. New Edi- 
tion went on to perform other songs un- 
til they literally got tired. At 2 a.m., the 
Greensboro Coliseum was still packed 
with devoted and satisfied fans. 


'Prince' shows signs of old 
glory with Emancipation 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

Prince. Symbol. The Artist Formerly 
Known As Prince or TAFKAP. What- 
ever you call him — call him great. 

Emancipation is the reawakening of 
the creative genius that has melded rock, 
R&B, rap, soul and whatever else you 
want to mention. Prolific? This album 
is three compact discs — each 60 min- 
utes in length. It is also his best since 
1 987 's Sign "0" the Times. 

The Artist I Still Call Prince hasn't 
produced a groundbreaking album in a 
decade, but Emancipation is an album 
with enough dance, music, sex and ro- 
mance for Prince fans but with a new 
outlook that includes more of a focus 
on monogamy and spirituality. In "The 
Holy River," Prince explores his trans- 
formation over the years and reveals his 
own lake on Christianity. 

The deeply religious overtones of 

that song arc as constant on Emancipa- 
tion, as are tracks dealing with love and 
sex, as with "In This Bed I Scream" and 
"Sleep Around." Prince's departure from 
his contract with Warner Bros, also fu- 
els the album's themes of artistic free- 

Emancipation is not Prince's best al- 
bum, but it is more than enough to re- 
veal talented artists such as R. Kelly and 
Baby face as merely pretenders to the 
throne. The once and future Prince is 

( Ihe jazz scene... 

Puente's latest delivery is special 

By Eugene Liauw 

Staff Writer 

By his singular status in Latin jazz, 
any album that boasts the name of 
percussionist Tito Puente is guaranteed 
extra special. With the new album 
appropriately titled Special Delivery. 
Puente shows why he is known 
throughout the Latin jazz world. 

Special Delivery marks Puente's 
108th album as a band leader. That is 
quite an accomplishment. He has played over five decades and continues to inspire 
us with his knowledge and leadership in Latin jazz. From the dawn of the Latin 
jazz era just after World War II to the contemporary style of tropical dance music- 
known as salsa, he is one of Latin America's premier musicians. 

Some of the songs that show his expertise are "Where You At?", which fits the 
mambo mold that is his trademark, and "Tito's Colada," which shows that Latin 
jazz is alive and well. 

After 108 albums and more one-nighters than he can remember, Tito Puente 
continues to surprise us with his new ways of expressing his musicianship. The 
sound you will hear on this album is as lively as his first album. It's a must-buy. 

English Patient romanticizes 
ill-fated lovers in tragic times 

Both book and movie seduce with symbolism, imagery 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

A comparison between a book and 
a movie is often not the most logical 
course to take in a review, but, in this 
case, an exception is rightfully made. 
The English Patient, written by 
Michael Ondaatje and printed in 1992, 
exudes grace and style. The movie is 
no different in this aspect. 

The novel depicts four people 
irrevocably scarred in their own ways 
by events in World War II. Ondaatje 
draws the reader into the minds of these 
people Hana, the nurse who devotes 
her life to the horribly burned English 
patient; Caravaggio, a thief maimed by 
Nazis; and Kip, an Indian bomb 
defuser--and leaves the haunting 
images of their lives long after the book 
is finished. 

The film works the same magic 
over the audience. People leave the 
theatre with tears drying on their 
cheeks and the words of the patient in 
their minds. This is no movie for the 
unemotional and unromantic viewer. 
Nor is the book a typical weekend read. 

The stark imagery and emotions 
translate well from page to screen, but 
that is where most of the similarity 
ends. Ondaatje writes for an audience 
that immerses itself in reading, and the 
book often leaves one confused. The 
movie follows a straighter path 
between the intermingled stories than 
the book does. The transitions between 
the present and the past in the English 
patient's life are much more orderly, 
making it easier to become engrossed 
in the tale 

Ralph Piemen, best remembered as 
Ahmon Goeth in Schindler's List, 
delivers a powerful performance as the 
title character, and Kristen Scott 
Thomas is stunning as his ill-fated 
lover. Juliette Binoche, Naveen 
Andrews and Willcm Dafoc add to the 
spectacular cast that entrances viewers 
with the intricate interweaving of lives. 

After reading the book and seeing 
the movie, it is hard to say which is 
better. Both are amazingly done and 
well deserving of their awards. Take 
an evening and see The English 
Patient; it should be the most moving 
experience of the year in cinema.

Chicken Soup offers spiritual nourishment 

Book of enlightening universal truths is like hot bowl of 
chicken soup to a sick kid — it hits the spot 

By Ben Kckman 
Special to the Chronicle 

"Practice Random Kindness and 
Senseless Acts of Beauty" is the title of 
one of the stories in the book Chicken 
Soup for the Soul. It is more than just a 
story title; it is a motto we should all 
live by. Chicken Soup for the Soul is a 
collection of short stories, comic strips 
and quotations. These stories were put 
together by Jack Canficld and Mark 
Victor Hansen to inspire readers. For me 
it has done so much more. I have been 

saddened, enlightened and given hope. 
Above all, I've been reminded of how 
fortunate I am. I am a 19-year-old 
college student with good health and a 
family who loves mc. 

Remember when you were a kid and 
you got sick. Mom or Dad fixed a bowl 
of hot chicken noodle soup and it made 
you feel bcttcr'.'This book does the same 
thing, except it's meant to heal your soul. 
The book itself is divided into eight 
sections: Love, Parenting, Death & 
Dying, Attitude, Learning & Teaching, 
Living Dreams, Overcoming Obstacles 


Love and War sports great 
acting and cinematography 

Hemingway's love story more than just a chick flick 

By Sue (Jessner 
Staff Writer 

In Love and War, a Richard 
Attenborough film starring Chris 
O'Donnell and Sandra Bullock, is based 
on the true story of Ernest Hemingway's 
youth and first love. 

The setting is northern Italy in 1918. 
The Red Cross has just sent over nurses 
to help with the casualties of World War 
I. Bullock plays a nurse named Agnes. 
She soon meets the spunky and persistent 
Ernie Hemingway, a reporter from the 
States who can't actually fight because 
of bad eyesight, but who was wounded 
while trying to rescue an Italian soldier. 

Both O'Donnell and Bullock deliver 
outstanding performances. They expertly 
deliver moments of humor, passion, fear 
and distress as if this were really their 
story and not just something they were 
recreating for the screen. 

Another fun addition to the cast of 
characters is Mackenzie Astin, who 
competes for Agnes. His character, 

though not a huge role, helps support and 
link the story together. He's come a long 
way since "The Facts of Life." 

The cinematography in this film is 
incredible. From gory battlefields to 
palaces in Venice to the poetic 
countryside, I felt an almost 
overwhelming sense that I was really 
there. So, if you already know the 
complete history of Hemingway's life, 
you'll still be surprised with the ending 
because the scenery will sweep away 
your senses. 

There are also some clever scenes 
between Aggie and Ernie that showed 
those feelings we're all so familiar with 
but in a way that made everything new 
and unique. 

Also very moving is the musical 
score which resembles that of Legends 
of the Fall in its passionate, then delicate 

Though this movie deals with matters 
of the heart, it is not a "chick flick." I 
highly recommend it to everyone. It's 
more than worth your six bucks. 

First Strike packed with action 

By David Gears 

Special to the Chronicle 

The comic, blundering, but somehow successful Hong Kong police officer in 
Supercop and Police Story I and II returns to theatres again in Jackie Chan's First 
Strike. Chan's superior, the now familiar Uncle Bill (Bill Tung) opens the film by 
giving Jackie a mission. Follow the subject and describe her actions on the plane. 
Give your report to your assigned contact when the plane touches down in the 
Ukraine. Except that this subject turns out to be Natasha, the girlfriend of Tsui, a 
CIA double agent involved in selling nuclear weapons for the Russian Mafia (Jack- 
son Lou). Looks like Jackie doesn't get his vacation. 

Rcmniscent of the James Bond film A View to a Kill in its mountaintop chase 
scenes. First Strike is almost, but not quite, a parody. Imagine a shivering Bond on 
a snowboard skiing down a mountain in a hat that looks like a baby seal. I don't 
think so. First Strike seems to use an array of double agents, nuclear weapons, 
KGB and organized crime to spoof the entire Bond genre. Jackie plays an ordinary 
guy who begins to feel like Bond but wonders where the girls are. 

But that's OK. No one sees a Jackie Chan feature for dramatic moments. People 
see it for the stunts, and, in this movie, there are many. From ski chases to falling 
from helicopters to jumping from tall buildings, delivered between a near constant 
barrage of Jtung fu choreography, there is never a shortage of testosterone pumping 
bodily hazards. First Strike is the quintessential guy movie. 

Although there was some weakness in the plot (not surprising given the genre) 
and substantial weakness in the dubbing (expected), the action scenes and the qual- 
ity and originality of the choreographed semi-violence make this movie well worth 
your time and money. I found myself agreeing with one of the Russian cronies who 
exclaimed, "This guy moves like a monkey." I can offer no higher praise. 

and Eclectic Wisdom. I recommend this 
book to people of all ages. Each story 
has its unique touch that gives readers 
the opportunity to peer into other 
peoples lives. Readers share their 
experiences of love, pain, joy, sorrow 
and faith. Each experience is very similar 
to an event from many people's lives. 
The book will, as the cover says, "Open 
the heart and rekindle the spirit." 

The book will also help readers learn. 
I have learned many new things. I 
learned that Dr. Richard Cummings, at 
the age of five, had his legs burned so 
badly that he was told he'd never walk 
again. Yet he ran the fastest mile ever. I 
learned that a sixth grader named Jimmy 

Masterdino created Ohio's state motto. 
"All things arc possible with God." I 
have even learned more about myself 
than I ever knew before. 

I was so inspired by the first book 
that I now own the 2nd and . 3rd Helpings 
of Chicken Soup for the Soul. Buy them. 
Read them. Check them out. But if 300 
pages is a little too much, you could buy 
A Cup of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and 
there's Chicken Soup for the Women's 
Soul also. I think that Albert Schweitzer 
said it best: "Sometimes our light goes 
out but is blown into flame by another 
human being. Each one of us owes 
deepest thanks to those who have 
rekindled this light." 


Phish rocks in 1997 with 
original tunes and covers 

Bohemian Rhapsody and classic Phish tunes 
give Garden audience a charge 

By Jason Morgan 

Staff Writer 

While people around the United 
States counted down the final seconds 
of 1 996 by watching a building blow 
up or listening to Dick Clark 
screaming into a microphone while 
pandemonium ensued in Times 
Square, 30,000 Phish fans rang in the 
new year with the band at Boston's 
Fleet Center. After a year's hiatus in 
New York, Phish returned to their 
roots in New England to finish out the 
New Year's run. 

Phish certainly didn't disappoint. 
It kept with its tradition of doing 
something special to ring in the new 
year like riding a huge hot dog around 
Boston Garden or Fishman playing the 
role of Baby New Year at Madison 
Square Garden last year. 

The audience at this year's show 
was knee-deep in balloons as the first 
second of 1997 ticked on the clock 
while the band ripped a phat "Down 
with Disease." But the suprise of the 
night came just after a nice "Antelope" 
when the band kicked into Queen's 
"Bohemian Rhapsody." As Page 
beautifully belted out the lyrics, a 
gospel choir filed onto the stage. If 

you've seen Wayne's World, you 
should have no trouble figuring out 
which part of the song the choir sang. 

As the jam approached, Trey raised 
his fist to the crowd as they got their 
groove on, and then he ripped the guitar 
solo. After the "Bohemian Rhapsody," 
the choir and the band closed the set 
with a special version of "Julius." They 
returned together for the encore as the 
choir sang "Amazing Grace" while 
Phish accompanied softly in the 

The highlight of the night was 
definitely the final three songs with the 
choir, but the other sets were equally 
great. "Axilla" into "Peaches" got the 
night going while an awesome 
"Tweezer Reprise" rocked the first set 
to an end. 

The sparklers in the crowd were a 
nice touch to Sparkle while the band 
played some new songs for good 
measure at the end of the second set. 
Finally, the third set was grooving from 
beginning to end. "200 1 " said goodbye 
to '96 and "Down with Disease" 
rocked as the band disappeared behind 
the maze of bouncing balloons and 
closed the show with the choir. Phish 
is off to Europe in the spring and 
returns to the States in the summer.

Wars' triumphant return 

George Lucas and the 
ILM wizards have 
recreated the sci-fi classic 
with the help of more 
modern special effects 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

A long time ago in a year far, far 
away, George Lucas graced the cinema 
with a groundhreaking film. Since its re- 
lease in 1977, Star Wars and its sequels 
have enthralled audiences world wide. 
For most, however, the thrills as the Jcdis 
face the Empire were contained by the 
small screen. Now Lucasfilms has an- 
swered every Star Wars fan's innermost 
desire. On Jan. 3 1 , a revamped Star Wars 
hits big screens nationwide. 

In 1977, a film studio headed by an 
idealist named George Lucas set out to 
make a movie that would set precedents 
for future films. Lucas and his special 
effects company, Industrial Lights and 
Magic, soon created the intcrgalactic 
megalith, Star Wars, and made steps in 
the motion picture business that had 
never been taken before. 

Now, 20 years later, Lucasfilms is 

working the magic again. In honor of the 
20th anniversary of Star Wars, Lucas and 
company have cleaned up, reshot and 
added in what was impossible in '77. 

With the technological advances 
made in the last 20 years, every part of 
the legendary flick has been improved 

The addition of footage that had been 
cut in the original film assures that even 
those who have seen Saw Wars before 
will be impressed. However, some who 
cling holistically to the original have 
their doubts about the insertion of the 
new special effects. 

It will be nice to see how well the 
digitally enhanced FX melds with the 20- 
year-old film. Mixed with the stereo sur- 
round sound and the size of the screen, 
Star Wars is finally returning to its 
former glory. 

Star Wars will once again soar into 
the lives of millions at the end of this 
month and it is a guarantee that theaters 
everywhere will be overrun with Vader 
fans, as well as those who have only 
heard of the greatness of the the trilogy, 
anxious to see the wizardry of this clas- 
sic on the large screen. 

Get there early and, as the commer- 
cial states, "See it again for the first

Scream a terrifying movie, One Fine Day a 
fantastic flick and Michael isn't too heavenly 

One Fine Day no Sleepless in Seattle; 
save money and re-rent a romantic classic 

By Keith Blythe 

Stuff Writer 

It Menu that folks arc "sleepless" 
in New York these days, at least ac- 
cording to the new Him One Fine 

Dux, directed by Michael Hoffman. 
The film is a weak effort to combine 
Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry 
Met Sally. Only, in this film, there are 
two adorable kids of single parent 
homes and no deceased parents. The 
acting is quite enjoyable, but the story 
itself comes up well short of the high 
standards found in the comparable 
movies listed above. 

The film stars Michelle Pfeiffer 
as Melanie Parker, a divorced archi- 
tect wilh a 6-year-old son Sammy 
(Alex I) I. in/.) and a very busy sched- 
ule ahead ol her for the day. Melanie 
is also responsible for getting 
Sammy's classmate, Maggie (Mac 
Whitman), to school, and her busy 
schedule becomes even tighter when 
Maggie does not show up on time. 
lintcr Jack Taylor (George Clooney ), 
a cocky investigative reporter with a 
somewhat cavalier attitude about 
parenting his adorable 6-year-old 
daughter, Maggie. 

Jack is forced into taking Maggie 
for a week while his ex-wife honey- 
moons in Barbados with her newly 
married second husband. Jack, the 

modern-day irresponsible single fa- 
ther, begrudgingly takes on the task 
of keeping his daughter. His ex- wife 
throws him a list of things to do for 
Maggie and whisks away to Barba- 
dos never to be seen again in the 
movie. Jack is the reason for Maggie 
being late. Consequently, the kids 
miss their class field trip. And for the 
next 45 minutes of the film, the task 
is to figure out a way for both par- 
ents to get through their busy day and 
take care of their kids at the same 
time. Jack and Mel take turns watch- 
ing the kids while the other is taking 
care of his or her busy career. 

If the idea of One Fine Day is to 
show us how tough single parents 
have it. then I suppose it does its job. 
Both Jack and Mel lose and re-find 
the children with some regularity, 
both are forced to make compromises 
and both find that working through 
their own relationship issues is the 
last thing they have time for. One 
Fine Day is simply a string of crises 
of varying magnitude, and, while a 
few are amusing, most conjure up 
more anxiety than laughs. Sammy is 
a particularly distressing case, a boy 
in desperate need of attention who 
drives his mother to tears with his 
inability to stay in one place without 
causing any damage. With inserts of 
clocks and watches that consistently 

Scream brings horror genre back with 
characteristic flair for unpredictability 

By Charles Arron Davis 

Special to the Chronicle 

At last! A horror film as unpre- 
dictable as the modern New York 
Yankees. Scream has taken the di- 
lapidated genre of horror and el- 
evated it to the level of mystery, 
only with a lot more blood. 

The opening scenes show Casey 
(Drew Barrymore) answering a 
phone call that eventually leaves 
her, her boyfriend and her parents 
dead. Although Barrymore's acting 
leaves the audience wishing for an- 
other Drew disappearance, the 
movie, gladly, does not focus on her. 
Instead, it uses killing an overrated 
actress to inspire a bizarre plot and 
scintillating characters. 

The plot then follows Sydney 
(Neve Campbell) as she is left alone 
for the weekend. Shortly thereafter 
she receives her call. After the bru- 
tal nature of the first killings.I found 
myself wondering how the movie 
could kill off its star so soon. The 
movie does not disappoint The 
killer then disappears when her boy- 
friend shows up unannounced. No 
macho struggle with the killer. He 
just disappears. 

At this point the movie changes 
tone, and the characters begin 
discusions about horror films. Per- 
haps the most refreshing aspect of 
Scream is the movie's constant 
acknowledgement of previous hor- 
ror films and the formula to which 
they adhere. According to one char- 
acter, all horror films adhere to a 
few rules. First, anybody who has 

sex is going to die — only virgins 
survive. Second, anyone drinking 
alcohol or doing drugs must also 
die. He gives this soliloquy while a 
group of partying high-schoolers 
watch Halloween. 

By using these instances in the 
film, the audience seems able to 
make judgments as to what will 
happen next or who the killer is. 
However, these snippets are not 
used to distract the audience from 
what is happening in a uniquely 
'90s film. The cinematography is 
well done. Nearly every character 
is given a cameo that pulls it out of 

Although the cast is generally 
made up of unknown actors, they 
do a great job in the film, lending 
uncertainty when necessary, or just 
blatant stupidity at times. Whatever 
mood is called for, these mostly 
young actors deliver with compas- 
sion and ingenuity. 

No character in the film knows 
who the killer is, and certainly no 
one in the theatre can discern any- 
thing, including how the killer will 
be stopped. Not until the final min- 
utes of this film are any answers 
given, and the ending is more 
bizzare than anyone could ever 

The days of the bad '80s horror 
films are over. Scream seems to say, 
if this (horror film plot) happened 
today, there would be no rhyme or 
reason or even motive. There would 
only be the fact that someone is 
stalking and killing, killing and 

remind us of impending deadlines. One 
Fine Dux delivers the nerve-wracking re- 
alism of impossible demands without leav- 
ing it with enough humor. 

One of the main drawbacks to the 
movie is that it delivers very little romance, 
which I found disappointing because there 
is an instant, obvious attraction between 
Pfeiffer's and Clooney's characters. Both 
Jack and Mel have an underlying desire to 
tell the other that they find them very at- 
tractive, but neither has the nerve to do so 
until the very end of the film. The last 15 
minutes of the film are dedicated to resolv- 
ing the audience's desire to sec these two 
attractive and seemingly compatible 
people get together. I was glad to sec that 
the writers at least let the audience see the 
two get together, but I felt that the film 
could have been well served by more ro- 
mance between Jack and Mel. I suppose 
you could chalk this mistake up to the ba- 
sis of the movie, just not enough time to 
get it all in. 

All in all One Fine Dux is a film that is 

constantly moving. The frenzied lives of Jack 
and Mel give the film no time to develop 
what could have been a beautiful on-screen 
romance. Pfeiffer and Clooney do an excel- 
lent job portraying their single parent char- 
acters and trying their hardest to carry the 
movie with their looks and acting alone. But 
the story itself is so weak that even covering 
it up with pretty faces and good acting still 
won't make it a great movie. 

Clooney does a good job jumping onto 
the big screen from the "E.R.," and Pfeiffer 
seems at ease leaving the classroom from 
Dangerous Minds for a high-paying archi- 
tect job. But both actors could have picked a 
stronger script for their next project. If you 
are a single parent looking for a movie de- 
picting your frenzied life or a married couple 
looking for a movie that shows the "other" 
side of parenting, then One Fine Dux is the 
movie for you. But if you're expecting to 
see a great love story between two beautiful 
people, then save your money, stay at home 
and watch Sleepless in Seattle or When Harry 
Met Sally again. 

Michael an amoral movie with a faulty view of 
angels; watch "Touched by an Angel" instead 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

With all the recent rage over angels — book, magazine articles, series like "Touched 
By An Angel" and movies such as The Preachers Wife— you may feel that you've seen 
everything when it comes to angels. Then don't bother with the new John Travolta film, 
Michael: there's definitely nothing new here. 

The plot is ridiculously simple: Michael, the archangel mentioned in the Bible (Judc 9, 
Rev. 12:7), comes to earth to help William Hurl's character "find his heart" — apparently 
by leading him to fall in love with Andie McDowell's character. 

We've seen this plot before; an angel comes to earth to help a human being become a 
better person through some sort of change in his life. "Touched By An Angel" portrays 
this theme every Sunday night on CBS, which succeeds in keeping the audience's atten- 
tion for an hour. Michael succeeds only in boring and confusing the audience for two 

Part of the problem is that the characters come across more as stereotypes than as 
people; indeed, you come away from the movie remembering not their names but their 
stock roles: the cynical man headed for a drastic change of heart, played by William Hurt; 
the love interest, played by Andie McDowell; the sidekick, played by Robert Pastorelli. 

Perhaps the most effort is put into the character of Michael. In a half-hearted attempt 
to make him more "human," John Travolta's character has been stuck with a handful of 
conflicting characteristics. However, none of them succeed in making him sympathetic to 
the audience or realistic and believable as an angel. 

We get our first full look at Michael when McDowell, Hurt and Pastoreli arrive at an 
elderly Iowa woman's residence to check out (he tip their employer, a national tabloid, 
received about the angel's existence. The woman calls for Michael, and he lumbers down 
the stairs in boxer shorts, looking rumpled and unattractive and scratching himself. He 
mumbles a greeting and goes back upstairs. 

The next morning, Michael comes across more as an untrained child than anything 
else. The trio from the tabloid watch in astonishment as Michael dumps cereal into a 
bowl, adds plenty of milk and then, grasping his spoon in his fist like an infant, pours 
spoonful after spoonful of sugar on his cereal. A moment later, Michael begins shoveling 
the mushy flakes into his mouth, half of them spilling back into the bowl at each bite. 

The idea, apparently, in this film, is to create an angel who is closer to earth than 
heaven. "Touched By An Angel" has succeeded for two seasons at portraying angels who 
are not always perfect — they lose their tempers, they lie, they argue. But they always have 
the best interests of humans at heart, and they always turn back to God when they have 
erred. After all, man was created "a little lower than the angels." 

Michael, however, seems to be no higher than the humans he has come to help. In- 
deed, he appears downright immoral in several instances. For example, when the four- 
some stops overnight on their way to take Michael back to the tabloid (as proof), Michael 
attracts women in a bar like flies to a fly strip. The foursome are thrown in jail after the 
men in the bar start a fight over the women's attraction to Michael. The next day, the 
judge, another woman, looks at Michael in court, then asks him into her chambers. What- 
ever Michael docs with/for her is effective because they are soon back on the road again. 

At another stopover, a young waitress is attracted to Michael. He takes her to his room 
that night; we hear her laughing through the wall; we see them exit the room together the 
next morning. What are we supposed to think? 

In addition, there is no doubt, in accompanying scenes, that the characters played by 
Andie McDowell and William Hurt sleep together. This is scarcely behavior condoned by 
the God of the Bible from which Michael's character is drawn. 

The entire film seems to have been designed to fit someone's idea of what a film 
should have in order to be successful: a little swearing, a little violence, a little comedy, a 
little sex and some special effects thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately, the entire 
film succeeds in only one area important to today's public — recycling. The plot, the char- 
acters and the music are all recycled from somewhere else. 

Scream a terrifying movie, One Fine Day a 
fantastic flick and Michael isn't too heavenly

Men's basketball hits mid-season slump, presses on 

Panthers win Bahamas Goombay Shootout 

By Megan Kecnan 
Sports Editor 

With half the season completed, the 
men's basketball team (7-9 overall, 4-7 
CVAC) is down but definitely not out 
of the race for the conference champi- 

Over Christmas vacation, the team 
won the Bahamas Goombay Shootout 
in Nassau, Bahamas. The team defeated 
Tiffin University 82-72 in the opening 
round but lost to Graceland College 8 1 - 
66 in round two. To finish out and win 
the tourney, the Panthers defeated Walsh 
University, 56-55. Brett Speight was 
named the tournament MVP, and Chad 
Reeves was named to the All-Tourna- 
ment team. 

Speight, last year's Conference 
Player of the Year, leads the team with 
21.5 ppg. and 10. 1 rpg. Following 
closely behind Speight is Junior Tracy 
Gross. Gross has shown strong play in 
conference games leading the team in 

scoring against Barton, Queens and 
Longwood and averaging 1 3.8 ppg. 

Fresh into play this semester. Reeves 
has averaged 1 3.2 ppg. and 7.2 rpg. and 
scored 26 points in Monday's win 
against Mount Olive. Prentice Woods 
also came off the bench after sitting out 
last semester. However, the team lost 
Jason Panourgias after he broke his hand 
in practice. 

The Panthers lost three consecutive 
conference games to Barton, Belmont 
Abbey and Queens after the Goombay 
Tournament. The team bounced back 
with conference victories over St. 
Andrews, Pfieffer and Mt. Olive but was 
also defeated by CVAC foes Queens and 

For the remainder of the season, the 
Panthers will be playing conference 
games mostly on the road. If the cards 
fall in their favor and no more injuries 
sideline players, the team could end the 
season with a rematch in the conference 
tournament finals with Queens. 

The men's basketball team (7-9. 4-7) is enduring a rare tough season.

Women's basketball vies for another conference championship 

Defensive-minded Lady Panthers look toward to 
traditional late-season showdown with Longwood 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Sports Writer 

If the old saying "defense wins cham- 
pionships" is true, then the women's bas- 
ketball team could be on its way to a 
great second half in the Carolinas- Vir- 
ginia Athletic Conference. 

"The strength of the team has been 
excellent defense," said coach Joe 

If anyone needs proof, look no fur- 
ther than the NCAA Div. II rankings. The 
Lady Panthers are ranked fifth in oppo- 
nents field goal percentage, allowing the 
opposition to shoot just 32.9 percent. 
Thus they yield only 57 points a game. 

Having finished up the first half of 
the CVAC season, the women stand 1 1 - 
4 overall and 7-2 in conference play. 
They are tied for second with Belmont 
Abbey and trail undefeated Longwood 
women by two games. 

While the Panthers' defense has been 
their strength, the scoring has not suf- 
fered. Led by All-America candidate 
Karen Curtis, the women average a win- 
ning margin of 13 points. Curtis is fifth 
in Div. II in scoring (23.5 ppg.) and ranks 
high in a number of other categories. She 
leads the Panthers in scoring, rebound- 
ing (8. 1 ), assists (4.9) and steals (3.3). 

Her backcourt mate, Dee Pennix is 
the only other player averaging double 
digits in scoring (11.9) and has been 

steady all year. 

While the season has been good, 
there have been some disappointments. 
Namely the tough, close losses to 
Queens by two points and Longwood by 
six. But Ellenburg hopes the team learns 
from those losses and how to handle 
some close games. 

Heading into the second half of con- 
ference play, Ellenburg feels there are 
two areas his team must improve in to 
move up in the standings. "We most defi- 
nitely have to step up our second-half 
rebounding effort," he said. "Everyone 
has to have a rebounding mentality when 
the other team starts crashing the 

"We need better scoring balance," 
Ellenburg noted as being the second im- 
provement needed. He points to the fact 
that it is nice to have Curtis scoring 23 a 
night, but if no one else steps up, then 
opponents can concentrate on stopping 
just one player. 

He feels that Jan Foushee, fully 
healed from a knee injury, and Annie 
Miller, a freshman coming off the bench, 
have shown signs that they can help 
Curtis in the scoring department. 

Saturday the Lady Panthers will have 
a big showdown with co-second place 
Belmont Abbey. A win would be a great 
way to start off the second half and to 
put some pressure on Longwood. 


The women's basketball team (11-4, 7-2) likes its post-season chances.

Kuykendall helps set winning traditon for Panthers 

The senior setter has been crucial to HPU's volleyball success 

By Melissa Goodman 
Staff Writer 

You would think the name Lori 
Kuykendall would be recognized among 
students lor leading ihe women's volley- 
hall team to iwo consecutive conference 
titles and for winning 30 straight con- 
ference matches. Unfortunately, the 
women's volleyball team doesn't get 
much attention. 

"I don't think the school gives us 
enough credit for what we do. We're a 
good team, and I think we get over- 
looked," said the senior captain from 
Greenville, N.C 

One of the fondest memories of her 
career is when the team won its first con- 
ference tournament at home. 

"It was great to have everyone cheer- 
ing when you made a great play unlike 
this year's tournament (at Lees McRae) 
when we were our only fans." 

Kuykendall credits the team's unity 
for its success. "We were all really close. 
Everybody pulled for everybody else 
because we knew that no one person 
could do it alone." 

Teresa Faucette, who has coached the 
team for four years, believes that deter- 
mination, team unity and "definitely tal- 
ent" have contributed to the team's suc- 
cess. However, she also believes that 
Lori stands out from the rest of the team. 

"She is very social, she has a great 
personality that helps her get along with 
everyone and she gave 110 percent at 
practice everyday," Faucette said. 

Kuykendall began her volleyball ca- 
reer in junior high only because her 
friends were trying out for the team. She 
ended up falling in love with the game. 

While serving as the Panthers' start- 
ing setter, she has won the coaches' dedi- 
cation award twice, most valuable player 
her senior year and most valuable player 
of the CVAC tournament at Lees- 
McRae. She also led the conference in 
assists with an average of 1 0.8 per game. 

After graduation she would like to 
coach at the high school level and even- 
tually at college. She also wants to coach 
a team for the Junior Olympics. 

Kuykendall stated that the person she 
respected the most was Faucette. "She's 
taught me how to be a leader, how to 
believe in myself and that I can do any- 
thing I set my mind to." She laughed. 
"Get it? Set my mind to!"

ACC race should stay 
close down the stretch 

By Todd "Red" Messner 
Spoils writer 

"I .aron Profit at the bu/./.er." This statement 
is well known, especially if you go to school or 
live on TobaCCO Road. If it is foreign to you, then 
you must have missed the Wake Forest-Mary- 
land game Jan. 19. This game took place in the 
middle of a week when the outlook for the rest 
of the season was set up to a tee. Maryland. Wake 
forest, ami Clemson all came into the week with 
undefeated ACC records and scheduled appoint- 
ments to play each other. 

It all started with a Clemson-Maryland 
match-up in Cole field House at College Park, 
Md. Clemson brought great depth to this game 
Compared to Maryland, which basically keys on 
seven players. The No. 2 Tigers came out with a 
lour-point victory, 67-63, which can be attrib- 
uted to No. 7 Maryland's poor free throw shoot- 
ing. This victory kept Clemson at the top of the 
conference and left Maryland frustrated with a 
meeting in Winston against Wake. 

Ihe Terps were hotter than a polar bear in 
Ihe desert in the first half running up a 19 point 
lead, which the No. 4 Deacons cut to 12 at the 
half Riding Tim Duncan's back, Wake fought 
back and took a second half lead that was squan- 
dered on Profit's three pointer. This put all eyes 
on the week's finale where Clemson and Wake 
Forest met in Death Valley at Clemson's 
Lilllejohn Coliseum. Tint Duncan and the troops 
would have nothing to do with two losses in a 
row and won a three-point decision. Clemson 
played catchup all game but was able to keep it 
close. A missed three-pointer at the bu/./.er by 
Clemson ended the game and once again we had 
a three-way tie for first place. 

These tnidseason battles, all decided by four 
points or less, ultimately showed that the talent 
and different strategies will keep the conference 
close. If these three lop teams don't boost the tal- 
ent in the ACC as being the best in the country, 
let's fall back on the fact that No. 10 Duke and 
No. I S North Carolina are also in the top 20. Steve 
Wojciechowski, who has been the spark for Duke, 
is looking to lead the Blue Devils to a big win 
and give them a 5-2 record, 

Seriously, though, it will be a great run to the 
ACC tournament, which will be held in Greens- 
boro. Ihe conference will almost certainly send 
live teams to March Madness, with a possibility 
of six depending on the tournament. Each team 
has another shot at each other so there should be 
some scores settled in the next month. These Sflu 
very exciting times to live on Tobacco Road, so 
make the most out of your opportunity to see 
some of these games. Remember Wake Forest. 
Duke and UNC are less than an hour away. 

Before you cram your brain for exams, cram your mouth. It hasn't been

School delays plans 
for Div. I but keeps 
its options open 

From staff reports 

High Point University announced 
last month it has postponed plans to 
join the NCAA Div. I Big South Con- 
ference. For at least another year, 
HPU will remain in the Div. II Caro- 
linas- Virginia Athletic Conference. 

"It's unfair 
to those confer- 
ences and to our 
coaches to make 
a hasty deci- 
sion," President 
Jacob C. Martin- 
son said. 

Last Sep- 
tember, a faculty 
athletic commit- 
tee voted to upgrade HPU's eligibil- 
ity for membership into Div I. Post- 
poning the move from Div. II caught 
many by surprise. 

Monday, Martinson said the 
school's Board of Trustees has ap- 
pointed a second committee to study 
the issue in more depth before mak- 
ing a binding decision. 

"We're going to put a lot of weight 
on this committee," Martinson said. 
"They could make a decision be- 
tween now and June, but I'm not go- 
ing to predict what they'll decide." 

The president stressed that sup- 
port from trustees and donors is cru- 
cial to maintaining a Div. I athletic 

"Everyone must commit to this," 
Martinson said. "We must have the 
support of everyone, especially the 
donors when it comes to money." 

If HPU turns Div. I, it will take 
two years before the school can gain 
official membership.

Going broke on the meal plan? 


The new high-priced meal 
plan has left one student 
feeling disillusioned 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

To meet students' needs, the univer- 
sity recently added The Point and The 
Panther Pantry and provided students 
with a variety of meal plans. 

Students can choose to eat in The 
Point, stop for a mid- 
day snack at the Pan- 
try or opt for the traditional cafeteria. 
The new choices meet a plethora of needs. 

But how much bang arc you getting 
for your meal-plan buck? According to 
sophomore Leo Orlov, not enough. He 
contends the new meal plan is ripping 
students off. 

"The prices are too high and we stu- 
dents need to do something about it," 
Orlov said. 

Orlov presented his concern at the 
Feb. 6 SGA meeting and provided stu- 
dents with the facts on how much we pay 
per meal. In January, he sent flyers, 
posters and memos to all campus organi- 
zations so students could become famil- 
iar with the current prices. 

Under the new semester meal plan, 


Members of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity enjoy lunch in the cafeteria. The 
school's mandatory on-campus meal plan has come under attack from 
some students who claim prices are too high. 

students can choose between Plan 1-19 
meals per week or Plan 2-14 meals per 
week with $ 100 to use at The Point and 

The 19 meals per week plan costs 
$1,435 and includes 272 meals. This 
means students pay $5.27 per meal with 
no use of The Point or Pantry. 

The other choice is 14 meals per 

week with $100 to use at The Point and 
Pantry. Using this plan, students pay 
$6.67 per meal. 

To Orlov, those inflated prices mean 
less money for students and more for the 

"That's why the school obligates on-

Students tell Panther Pantry to 
start stocking some condoms 


The Panther Pantry carries a 
plethora of tobacco products, but 
no contraceptives can be found. 

By Heid Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

The Panther Pantry has all the basic 
necessities of college life: soda, candy 
and Oodles of Noodles. It also has some 
things we might be able to live without, 
like Spam and sardines. 

And though we hate to knock a good 
thing, anyone can tell by looking at the 
dry-erase board hung on the wall of the 
Pantry that students feel the convenience 
store is missing a few things. The board 

reads, "What would you like to see at the 
Panther Pantry?" 

A variety of products are scribbled in 
blue marker, but the items with the most 
hash marks next to them are condoms 
and gallons of milk. Cashier Ruth Ban- 
nister expects the coolers to be stocked 
with gallons of milk some time soon, but 
she doubts that condoms will ever be 
sold for Panther Points.

Whose stance dictated Friends decision? 

Was it High Point or the United Methodist Church? 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

Controversy remains over whether it 
is the United Methodist Church's posi- 
tion or High Point University's that pre- 
vents support for Friends, a resource and 
support group for gays, lesbians, bisexu- 
als and their friends. 

Oean of Students Gart Evans denied 
Friends a charter in late November, claim- 
ing the organization did not comply with 
the university's mission statement. 

"It's probably our stance through the 
interpretation," Evans said. "Based on 
our knowledge, we cannot support 

President Jacob C. Martinson said, 
"Whether or not the university chooses 
to be affiliated with the church, how 
honest is it to be affiliated with the church 
and not abide by the church's stance? If 
we accept money from the church, we 
should abide by the church." 

Kenya Mada, a member of the 
church's General Board of Education, 
which makes sure Methodist-affiliated 
institutions carry out school policy, said, 
"It needs to be carefully debated. The 
situation is very sensitive. You might 
violate the individuals' rights and you 
might violate the church's rights." 

Can High Point University remain an 
accredited United Methodist institution 

if it charters Friends? 

"It is very hard to determine a clear- 
cut, black-and-white, yes-or-no answer," 
Mada said. "The school has its own insti- 
tutional policy. They can set the policy 
with their own interpretation of the (the 
church's) Book of Discipline, but there 
are a number of ways to interpret it." 

During a meeting with the church's 
University Senate, an elected body that 
determines which institutions can be af- 
filiated with the United Methodist 
Church, students asked if it was the 
church or the university that did not 
support gay organizations. 

"When we came out of that meeting, 
we understood that it was not the church, 

See FRIENDS, pg. 4 

Was it the administration, or was it 
the United Methodist Church which 
had the final say on Friends?

Try not to do 
anything stupid 
when driving in 
icy conditions. 


Billy-Bob High Point drivers 
can't drive in wintry weather 

To the editor: 

As frozen rain, ice and snow fall to 
the ground, everyone I see becomes dis- 
mal. Their plans for the evening have 
heen canceled and there will be no joy in 
High Point tonight. For us seasoned 
northern veterans, however, the weather 
allows us to once again partake in our 
favorite pastime - watching North Caro- 
linian drivers take to the road. 

Our fair-weathered friends will deny 
any allegations or claims that they are 
unable to drive in snow, but I'll give 
"y'all" fair warning: DO NOT succumb 
to your childish curiosities to find out if 
what I say is true. Trust me. 

I understand and can easily explain 
why our Carolina siblings become such 
a nuisance and threat in such conditions. 
They rarely deal with such elements. I 
cannot, however, understand or explain 
the thought process which seems tochurn 
in their formula-one minds. 

There seem to be three schools of 
thought if you arc aCarolinian driver and 
arc confronted with such a tantalizing 

I ."The faster I can get from point A to 
point B, the less time I will actually 

spend on the unsure roads. Therefore, I 
am safer the faster I drive. Floor It, Billy- 

2."I must spin the wheels at such an 
excessive speed so as to melt the snow 
beneath the tire, creating solid contact 
with the road. Because of this firm 
contact, I will thrust straight and true. 
Upon any desire or need to stop my 
forward motion, I will brake as hard and 
as fast as I possibly can, once again 
creating firm contact by pushing the 
snow out and off the pavement. 

3. "I have a 4-wheeI-drive Chevy, 
with 36-inch Mickeys. Let it snow." 

With experience I can assure you that 
not one of these thoughts is, by any 
stretch of the imagination, accurate. In 
fact, they all contain great elements of 
danger and disaster. 

I have given my northern brothers 
and sisters fair warning and a great stable 
source of entertainment. I must beseech 
my southern counterpart, however, to 
stick to barbecue and amusing analogies, 
and to allow a friend of the north to be 
your escort in such times of confusion.

HAPf^ '" rc °\ 


A good majority of 
people affiliated 
with this university 
were shocked when High 
Point seemingly reneged on 
pursuing Division I status 
last month. 

On Sept. 11, 1996, the Board of 
Trustees had voted to upgrade HPU's 
eligibility for membership into the 
NCAA from Div. II to Div. I. Most 
people, including me, took this to mean 
the move was a done deal. 

January's announcement that HPU 
would not join the Big South Confer- 
ence in the fall caught nearly every- 
one off guard. It seemed the school was 
turning its back on the chance of a life- 
time by passing up Div. I status. 

Not so last. 

It now seems the Board just wanted 
to take a patient step back and exam 
ifM (he whole process in a little more 
depth. In the long run, this probably 
will be a good decision. 

There are a number of options to 
weigh, and not all are related to athlet- 
ics. The Board of Trustees realized this 
in January and chose to postpone next 
fall's planned move. 

But at its monthly meeting Feb. 12, 
the Board got the ball rolling once 
more by appointing a second commit- 
tee, chaired by prominent donor Jim 
Millis (of Millis Gym fame), to exam- 
ine all the nuances. 

They studied it financially, aca- 
demically, and they studied it admin- 

Board's decision to postpone going Division I 
could actually turn out to be a pretty wise move 

Rob Humphreys ; ggkj^BHBBI istratively," President Jacob 

C. Martinson said of the first 
committee, which examined 
going Div. 1 in 1996. "At the 
last meeting, the chair 
(George Erath) appointed an 
ad hoc committee to again 
study the possibility of go- 
ing Division I." 

Martinson believes that 
tantamount to properly turning Div. I 
is the continued financial support and 
backing of donors and trustees. Their 
commitment to pledge their "re- 
sources" to HPU athletics instead of 
Duke, Wake Forest, UNC, et al., is cru- 
cial in developing first-rate programs. 
He also implied that the Big South 
Conference will welcome us with open 
arms when and If we choose to join the 
big boys. 

"I'm sure we will have opportuni- 
ties in more than just one conference," 
Martinson said. "The Big South likes 
our location, our facilities, our people 
and our academics." 

In a move which would comply 
with NCAA Div. I gender equity stan- 
dards, the school is adding women's 
outdoor and indoor track to compen- 
sate for its lack of female sports. Should 
this be seen as foreshadowing a jump 
to Div. I in the near future? 

"I think we'll know by the next 
(scheduled) board meeting (March 
12)," Martinson said. "They're having 
a board meeting between now and the 
next one, so it looks like they could be 
aiming at something." 

My bet is the Board will recom- 
mend going Div. I in the fall of 1998.

>es^> Should HPU give a day off to honor MLK? 

Administration's belief that taking an entire day to 
celebrate would be another reason to party is absurd 

By Blake Zach 

Special to the Chronicle 

Does the HPU student body consist 
entirely of drunken Greek hillbillies with 
no cares lest they be about parties and/or 
directions to them? 

No! This is a drastic misrepresenta- 
tion and false generalization about stu- 
dents and Greeks - yet one the school 
administration uses to justify its refusal 
to observe Martin Luther King Day en- 

Although the school did set aside two 
hours for a recognition ceremony this 
year, it refused to celebrate the entire 
day. To me, this implies that Greeks and 
other students would consider it as just 
another day to party, and very few would 
care enough to come and participate. 
Perhaps the administration's observa- 
tions about students and their priorities 
might only be a reflection of themselves 
and alumni. 

As a Greek student and one who has 
been known to enjoy an occasional party , 
I am disgusted by such assumptions. I 
went to the brief ceremony, not only 
because I was required, but because I 
was interested. 

I know some students would use this 
holiday to suck down a couple extra 
beers, but I also know many more would 
embrace a full-day ceremony for no other 

reason than the education and motiva- 
tion they might receive. I enjoy my week- 
ends very much, but I came to college to 
get an education. Although some faculty 
might disagree, I have learned more, and 
thus grown more, as a result of what I 
have learned outside the classroom. 

The HPU student body is small but 
very diverse. In my years at High Point, 
I have met many people. And most of 
those I have met have the uncanny abil- 
ity to think for themselves, stand for 
what they believe and fight against that 
which they do not. 

If the administration could descend 
from the shoulders of tradition and au- 
thority, and talk to most any student, it 
would find what I say to be true. 

In "Letter from Birmingham Jail," 
Martin Luther King Jr. wrote: "Shallow 
understanding from people of good will 
is more frustrating than absolute misun- 
derstanding from people of ill will. Luke- 
warm acceptance is much more bewil- 
dering than outright rejection." 

I understand this, and I believe the 
administration consists of people with 
good will. So I admonish the powers that 
be to think of students more highly and to 
recognize Martin Luther King as not 
only a black man, but as a great man. 

We must respect and honor such men 
of greatness because it is simply the right 
thing to do. 

The reality is, most students would honor King in 
the same way - with a 12-pack the night before 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

I am the first to admit that Dr. Martin 
Luther King Jr. was the greatest civil 
rights leader this country, and possibly 
the world, has ever seen. However, HPU 
does not need to celebrate his birthday 
with a day off from classes. 

In a way, the day would be marred by 
no classes because about 80 percent of 
the student body would commemorate 
King in the same way — waking up at 3 
p.m. from the hangover caused by a 12- 
pack of beer consumed the night before. 

A bunch of sleepy, half-drunk stu- 
dents wandering around campus with 
nothing to do does not advance civil 
rights. It reflects poorly on a day that is 
supposed to honor a great man. 

However, in classes, students can 
work for a better future with fewer preju- 
dices and stereotypes. Aren't those the 
goals we should focus on during King 

Another argument is that it is simply 
not consistent with the other holidays 
this university observes. Should we not 
take Washington's birthday, Lincoln's 
birthday and Labor Day if we take other 
state holidays like King Day? 

Were Washington and Lincoln not 
great men and their accomplishments as 

great as King's? With the obvious ex- 
ception of the dubious Honors Day, which 
is a crock anyway, this university dis- 
misses classes only for Christian holi- 
days like Christmas and Easter. This 
university, as a religiously affiliated in- 
stitution, has an obligation to take major 
Christian holidays. I know the late Rev. 
King would approve. 

Most students don ' t get into the mean- 
ing behind any holidays. Christmas is 
overshadowed by gift-giving, and Easter 
is dominated by a fictitious bunny dis- 
tributing baskets full of eggs, candy and 
fake grass. 

This is what Rev. King would be 
appalled at, not that we didn't "honor" 
him with another day of inebriation. 

"I don't really care," junior Lauren 
Petrosino said. "I went toCatholic school, 
and we got out for everything like the 
feast of Mary sneezing twice on some 

It is not applicable to dismiss people 
who do not believe this holiday should 
be observed as racists, rednecks or Na- 

There are good reasons for staying in 
class. I do, however, urge teachers if they 
can, to make their lessons deal with King 
or other civil rights leaders. This is the 
way to celebrate King day, not lying in 
bed with a hangover. 


Clarissa's story imparts valuable lesson 
for improving relations between the races 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

This passage appears early in Ralph 
Ellison's short story, "The Black Ball": 

"Daddy, am I black?" 

"Of course not, you're brown. You 
know you're not black." 

"Well yesterday Jackie said I was so 

"He was just kidding. You mustn't let 
them kid you, son." 

"Brown's much nicer than white, 
isn't it, Daddy?" 

"Some people think so. But American 
is better than both, son." 

We are all human beings. We may 
have different eye colors, hair colors and 
skin colors -different accents, different 
countries of origin, different beliefs. But 
at the basis of our beings, we are alike, as 
Shylock points out in this speech from 
Act 3, Scene 1 of Shakespeare's The 
Merchant of Venice: 

"Hath not a Jew eyes? hath not a Jew 
hands, organs, dimensions, senses, af- 
fections, passions? fed with the same 
food, hurt with the same weapons, sub- 
ject to the same diseases, healed by the 
same means, warmed and cooled by the 
same winter and summer... If you prick 
us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do 
we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not 

Should these differences really mat- 
ter, then, in our dealings with each other? 
Is there truly any valid reason for preju- 
dice? Or can we learn to see each other 
first as people and only secondarily as 
black, white, male, female, Christian, 

Jew, etc.? 

My closest female friend in high 
school was named Clarissa. She was 
pretty, intelligent, hard-working and a 
lot of fun. She worked at McDonald's 
and wanted to be an accountant. She 
admired my writing; I admired her as a 

Oh. the way. .Clarissa was black. 

But the color of her skin is the last 
thing I recall when I think of Clarissa. I 
remember first that she was a great friend. 
I remember she sat behind me in Ameri- 
can history class. I remember us sitting 
on the desks in computer accounting 
class, laughing and talking. I remember 
how lovely she looked at our junior prom. 

And I remember her speech on affir- 
mative action in our AP English class. I 
don't recall which side she took. But I do 
remember what Jerry, our student body 
president and a member of our class, said 

"Until you gave that report, it didn't 
occur to me that you're the only black 
person in this class. I don't think of you 
first as black — I just think of you as 
Clarissa. You're one of us." 

What Jerry said was true for all of us, 
and the moment Jerry finished, we af- 
firmed Clarissa as he had. It didn't mat- 
ter to us what the color of Clarissa's skin 
was. She was our classmate and our 
friend. She was one of us. 

"I don't know what/ all this fuss is 
about. In the first place, you're not white; 
you're beige. And I'm not black; I'm 
brown. In our hearts we are the same. So, 
you see, we're closer than we think we 
are." — Anonymous

MEAL PLAN, continued from 

campus students to buy meal plans," he 
said "It's an easy way to pocket money." 

Door prices at the cafeteria and com- 
muter, faculty and staff plans are the 
cheapest alternatives. Door prices are $3 
for breakfast, $3.50 for lunch and $5 for 
dinner. Commuters, faculty and staff have 
the least expensive meal plans with three 
different deals: 10 meals for $30 ($3 per 
meal), 25 meals for $71.25 ($2.85 per 
meal), and 50 meals for $ 1 37.50 ($2.75 
per meal). 

The school and Aramark share rev- 
enues from the meal plan, but according 
to cafeteria managers, Aramark is the 
school's client, and neither can disclose 
what percentage of money they receive 
from each meal plan. 

"It's not fair that they keep this infor- 
mation from us," said Orlov. "We have a 
right to know what our money is being 
used for. Everything, right down to the 
last penny." 

Dr. Morris Wray, vice president of 

front page 

internal affairs, stressed that profits from 
the meal plan are used to supplement the 
school's overall budget. 

"Students have to look at the big 
picture," Wray said. "The school is not in 
the business of making money - it all 
goes back to the students." 

Orlov expressed his frustration with 
the Office of Student Life for discourag- 
ing his efforts at reform. 

"The Office of Student Life needs to 
acknowledge that we students also have 
opinions," Orlov said. "Right now, they 
are making rules to benefit themselves, 
not the students." 

This week Orlov plans to start a cam- 
pus-wide petition to get students' input 
on changes expected to be made next 
semester by administrators. 

"We students work very hard to make 
a difference," he said. "But with unfair 
rules from administrators, it makes it 
very hard for us to get anything accom-

Administration revises club guidelines 

FRIENDS, continued from front page — : 

but the school who said no to a charter," 
said Keith Corbett, assistant area coordi- 
nator of the Complex. "The University 
Senate said it would be wrong to blame 
the United Methodist Church for not 
granting a charter to Friends." 

After Friends was denied a charter, 
the administration began revising the 
club guidelines and has not allowed any 
more clubs to apply. "We have 40 or so 
organizations. The discussion has been - 
'Do we need all of these?'" Evans said. 

Jennifer Gaunt, president of Friends, 
said, "It is possible Friends stopped oth- 
ers from being chartered. And that is not 
gaining us any supporters, only enemies." 

The Genesis Gospel Choir was told it 
could not receive a charter this semester 
because admin instrators believed there 
were too many clubs. However, Evans 
asked Black Cultural Awareness to pro- 
vide financial support for the choir dur- 
ing the remainder of the spring semester. 

The administration believes that not 
granting a charter to Friends and the 
current hold on charters are coincidental 
and insists that the hold is temporary. 
The new charter guidelines will be avail- 
able by the end of the semester in the 
forthcoming student handbook. 

Money has been another issue. The 
Book of Discipline states: "The council 
shall be responsible for ensuring that no 
board, agency, committee, commission, 

or council shall give United Methodist 
funds to any 'gay' caucus or group, or 
otherwise use such funds to promote the 
acceptance of homosexuality." 

Lauren Petrosino, a member of 
Friends, said, "We were not asking for 
money from the school. There would not 
have been any direct transactions from 
High Point University to us. We wanted 
the $500 donation that was given by an 
alum for a club like ours." 

The donation was given by alumnus 
Ralph Hoar in April of 1994 to bring a 
prominent speaker on gay and lesbian 
issues to the university. Hoar was told, 
however, that $500 would not be enough 
to pay for such an appearance. This fall 
he said the money should be given to 
Friends. Because Friends was not offi- 
cially recognized by the university, the 
check was sent back to Hoar, but he may 
still give Friends the $500. 

Gaunt said, "Money is not the main 
reason that we want to be chartered. We 
want to be posted in school bulletins, we 
want a vote in SGA and we want official 

Evans said, "It was not clear (during 
the application process) that they did not 
want money. They wanted official rec- 
ognition and the same options all other 
clubs had. One of which is to receive 
money from the SGA budget."

Five thieves 
arrested in 
campus crimes 

Two will be tried as adults; 
other three are juveniles 

By Rob Humphreys 


High Point police have arrested five 
suspects in connection with a string of 
campus crimes dating to December. 
None of them attended the university. 

Two juveniles and 16-year-old Jay 
Ingram were arrested Jan. 31 for pos- 
sessing stolen video game equipment 
from the Campus Center. The school is 
pressing felony charges of breaking-and- 
entering, larceny and possession of sto- 
len property. 

Two more arrests were made Feb. 3 
in an incident involving a stolen and 
damaged Budd Services golf cart. 
Andrieus Carter and a juvenile were ar- 
rested on charges of felony larceny after 
stealing and demolishing the mainte- 
nance-operated golf cart Jan. 24. 

"All of them have confessed," High 
Point Detective Parker Howey said. "I 



Five suspects have been arrested 
in connection with various campus 
crimes. One suspect, a 16-year-old 
male, will be tried as an adult Feb. 
27 in District Court for possessing 
stolen video game equipment from 
the Campus Center Indigo Room. 
The court dates for the other suspects 
have not been released.

Howey said police also are investi- 
gating the suspects' links to other cam- 
pus crimes but could not elaborate on 
which ones. He did say there will be 
more arrests in related incidents. 

Ingram's district court date is sched- 
uled for Feb. 27. The court dates for 
Andrieus Carter and the three juveniles 
have not been set. 

If convicted, the suspects could face 
punishments ranging from probation to 
jail time. 

"When you're talking about property 
crimes, it really depends on the indi- 
vidual as far as what the sentences are," 
Howey said. 

According to Howey, Ingram has no 
criminal record and probably will re- 
ceive no more than probation if con- 
victed. The records of the other four sus- 
pects were not available.

Vietnamese political emigrant 
loves American education 

Danny Ho, an accounting major, enjoys his new freedoms 

By Blake Zach 

Special to the Chronicle 

While many students mosey through 
the hallways, stressed over papers due 
and classes to attend, sophomore Enok 
Touprong Ho-Le smiles in apprecia- 
tion of college and life as he recalls his 
days in communist South Vietnam. 

Enok, better known as Danny Ho, 
has lived in America for only four 
years. He was born and raised in Saigon 
and urges his peers to appreciate the 
United States. "Trust me," he said. "Go 
to another country and you will see the 
difference. I thank God every day for 
this government and for letting me be 
here. It is the best." 

Ho-Le was only able to come to 
America after his father left South Viet- 
nam. His father, who was seen as a 
threat because of his democratic politi- 
cal views, fled after the 1975 commu- 
nist takeover. 

Danny, an accounting major, will 
not play the victim. "Sometimes life is 
unfair," he said. "You have to learn to 
accept it." 

Ho-Le notes the biggest difference 
between his past and present is the 
freedom in America. "Human rights, 
freedom of speech. Here you make fun 
of Clinton all the time - you would 
never see that. You're gonna get 

Danny thrives on his freedom to 
speak, especially in school, saying, "I 

love being able to ask questions. It is 
very good. Here if you don't under- 
stand, the teacher have to explain. There, 
teacher would ask you to explain why 
you don't understand." 

Danny couldn't speak out in Saigon 
because of the authoritarian educational 
system and its bias against his family's 
political views. 

He does see a problem in American 
education, noting, "Students here have 
more power. Ask and say whatever. 
They got so much freedom and rights 
that they don't respect other people. So 
many people are like, 'Me! Me! Me!'" 

His favorite thing in America is still 
the people, though. "Everybody is so 
nice," he says. "It's good over here." 

Danny is very thankful to his father 
and to HPU and gives a little back to 
them by playing soccer here. "It is a 
family tradition. I play year around, 
everywhere. I get betterevery day. I am 
the first person in my family to play for 
an American college." 

He hopes to continue to take advan- 
tage of the American educational sys- 
tem, saying, "I definitely will try to go 
to grad school . If I get a degree it will be 
better. I will help myself, my family - 
help everybody. 

"I know I'm not going to make it to 
college over there - nothing I could do. 
Here there are a lot of things to do. I can 
do anything if my heart feel right and it 
not bad or immoral."

some of the things the store sells. "They 
want to know why we have some things 
and not others," she said. 

One girl buying some snack items 
glanced beside the register at a stack of 
Phillies Blunts. "You sell these?" 

Ruth nodded affirmatively at the rhe- 
torical question and the girl huffed in 
mild disappointment. Other question- 
able items stocked on the Pantry shelves 
are cigarettes, chewing tobacco and 
"Alertness Aids" like Vivarin. Students 
want to know why the store sells prod- 
ucts like cigarettes that can kill and not 
condoms which protect against deadly 
diseases like AIDS. 

Ruth and other Pantry clerks notify 
their supervisor of student concerns. She 
"guesstimates" that about 90 percent of 
students are pleased with the store and 

that most reasonable requests will be 
filled eventually. 

Dr. Morris Wray, vice president of 
internal affairs, said a consenus of ad- 
ministrators agreed that condoms would 
not be sold in the Pantry for an undeter- 
mined length of time. 

"They decided that this is not the 
message we should send as an institu- 
tion," Wray said. "This is a way of say ing 
'some things are better than other things. 
Some lifestyles are better than others.' If 
we were to make condoms readily avail- 
able on campus, it would be like saying 
'all things are equal.' " 

The final word seems to be, don't 
expect to buy condoms for Panther Poi nts 
any time soon. If you want condoms, 
you'll have to pay cash. They're $ 1 .99 at 
Circle K.

Jones learns painful lesson in 
Saturday of drunken partying 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

Every weekend it is the same old 
scene, grooves, booze and left-handed 
Luckies. Students arrive at the frater- 
nity with backpacks full of beer, binge 
and end praying to the porcelain god 
hours later. 

Despite all the issues the Theta Chi 
fraternity has dealt with recently, three 
robberies and national probation, it 
faced a scarier experience Feb. 8 due 
to a guest's binge drinking and a 
brother's arrest. 

Students tend to drink a few beers 
in their rooms before going to frater- 
nity parties. Sophomore Chris Jones, 
an independent, did not just drink a few 
beers before going to the Theta Chi 
house. A pre-party buzz was not his 
intention. Jones managed to drink 
three-quarters of a fifth of tequila in 
his room before stumbling to the party. 

Jones barely made it on his own. 
He recalls other students on their way 
to the houses helping him. Upon Jones' 
arrival he gulped the rest of his tequila. 
"After I left my room, I don't remem- 
ber much. I didn't think I had taken 
my bottle with me until I dropped it 
on the deck. I picked it up and finished 
the little that was left," said Jones. 

Jones made his way through the 
house and soon collapsed on the front 
lawn. Chris Craig, a Theta Chi, called 
911 when he witnessed his best friend 
crying for help. "Craig. Where is 
Craig?" said Jones. "Don't let me leave 
this world, Craig. Don't let me die." 
Jones' agony increased as an ambu- 
lance arrived and paramedics and po- 
lice surrounded him. 

Jones agreed to get in the ambu- 
lance after the paramedics advised him 
to do so. "Only if Craig comes with 
me," Jones said several times. Para- 
medics helped Jones to the ambulance 
with Craig by his side. 

"OK, OK, your friend can come 
with you," said one of the paramed- 
ics. Jones hopped in the ambulance, 
expecting his friend to follow. But the 
only thing behind him were the closed 
doors. Craig stood astonished as the 
ambulance drove away. 

Jones could be heard banging on

the doors and screaming for his friend. 

Craig had been calm, but when he 
was not allowed in the ambulance he 
went berserk. Craig shouted his dis- 
tress at not being able to go in the am- 
bulance. "Why did you lie to me and 
say that I could go with him?" Craig 
asked a police officer, who said, "Get 
back, stay away. You're not going with 
him." As the conflict escalated be- 
tween Craig and the officer, several 
Theta Chi brothers restrained Craig. 

The officer said, "If you kids didn't 
drink so much, this kind of thing 
wouldn't happen." Craig felt as if the 
officer were taunting him. Brothers 
continued restraining Craig and tried 
to keep him quiet so he would not say 
something he would regret. But Craig 
said, "Why can't you be a little more 
compassionate about the situation, you 
son of a bitch?" The officer reacted 
and clapped the cuffs on Craig. 

Craig was released from jail at 5 
a.m. Sunday morning. "They charged 
me with shouting, cursing and rudely 
insulting an officer," he said. Jones 
was released from the hospital at 1 :30 
p.m. Sunday after having his stom- 
ach pumped. "I can't remember any- 
thing after I got up to the house. I 
downed that last bit of tequila and I 
was out," said Jones. 

He became conscious when he got 
to the hospital while doctors inserted 
tubes through his nostrils. "My blood 
alcohol level was .3 1 5; the doctor said 
that .4 is a deep coma and .5 is death," 
said Jones. 

"Whenever cops come to campus, 
it's always with an attitude," said a 
Theta Chi brother, who requested ano- 
nymity. "It's like they want something 
to go wrong so they can bust us." 

According to Craig, he was only 
trying to help his friend, not start 

"Jones wanted me with him and 
the paramedic said I could, but that cop 
was such an ass, and that's why I told 
him off," said Craig. 

For Jones it was a frightening 
night. "It scared the hell out of me. I 
didn't think I was going to survive. I'm 
gonna take it easy for a while. I just 
took it too far. I regret it big time. Big 
time," said Jones.

Dante's Peak erupts 
with splendid effects 

By Sue Gessner 

Staff Writer 

Dante 's Peak, the new action-thriller 
in the tradition of Twister, kept me on 
the edge of my seat from the opening 
credits to the final, thunderous notes of 
the compelling musical score. In fact, the 
digital surround sound was so 
intimidating that I nearly dumped my 
popcorn during the very first scene! 

You would never suspect that this 
quaint and peaceful town nestled in the 
mountains of Washington slate could 
turn into a chaotic nightmare. Thanks to 
incredible special effects, (that were 
actually better than those in Twister), it 
did just that. 

Dante's Peak is a proud little town 
known for its gorgeous, take-your- 
breath-away scenery and relaxing hot- 
springs. The volcano next door has been 
dormant for 7,000 years, so everyone 
assumes it is extinct. No one is too eager 
to publicize the fact that it has only been 
"sleeping," except for one passionate 

The cast is headed up by Pierce 
Brosnan and Linda Hamilton, both of 
whom are not strangers to action-packed 
roles. Brosnan plays the amazingly suave 
and perceptive volcanologist named 
Harry whose heroics are reminiscent of 
both Remmington Steele and James 
Bond, even if the new name doesn't 
show it. Brosnan may be getting older, 
but he definitely hasn't lost his charm. 

Hamilton is Rachel, a divorced 

mother of two who owns a coffee shop 
in addition to being mayor. Her character 
is likable, but not very believable. I kept 
wondering how a young, divorced mom 
got elected as mayor of a small town 
filled with old gossips and traditionalists, 
especially when her skirts were a tad on 
the short side. But wardrobe aside, both 
actors did superb jobs. 

I found it interesting that the creators 
of this film kept incorporating elements 
of other blockbuster hits into the 
storyline and dialogue. For instance, all 
of the volcanologists on the scene are just 
as psycho as Helen Hunt's crew was in 
Twister, and the contraption that they 
send into the volcano to "take its 
temperature" looks like a close cousin 
to the Twister machine. And what better 
line to let everyone know that the action 
is about to start than "Houston, we have 
a problem"? 

Some of these repetitions made the 
movie a little trite, but then I got to 
thinking, hey, I have to do the whole 
suspension of disbelief thing anyway, 
why not let this go, too? 

Indeed, that's just what you should 
do. Don't let the ridiculously 
unbelievable nature of this movie keep 
you from seeing it. Dante's Peak is 
highly entertaining, if nothing else. But 
don't wait for the video. This is one you 
have to see on the big screen — I 
recommend the cinema at Oak Hollow 
Mall. They have it on an extra large 
screen, the old fashion kind, that won't 
let you forget the experience.

In a class we were recently discuss- 
ing foreign films and how much we en- 
joyed them. Then I noticed that there 
were only three of us discussing them: 
the professor, myself and one other stu- 
dent. So I have compiled a top 10 list of 
foreign videos. But please, get the films 
that are subtitled, not dubbed. Dubbed 
films will annoy you whereas after a few 
moments of a subtitled movie you will 
not notice you are reading. 

1 . My Left Foot (Irish)- Daniel Day- 
Lewis depicts Christy Brown, a man 
with muscular dystrophy, and his chal- 
lenges growing up. It also shows his rise 
as an artist, using the only part of his 
anatomy he could control, his left foot. 

2. Queen Margot (French)- Isabelle 
Adjani and Vincent Perey give an excel- 
lent performance as lovers in this epic 
drama about Henri de Bourbon and his 
rise as king of France. This film is full 
of plot twists, sex, murder and Protes- 
tant- Catholic conflict and a must-see. 

3. Camille Claudel (French)- Isabelle 
Adjani and Gerard Depardieu portray the 
sculptress Camille Claudel and Rodin. 
This film shows the downward spiral of 
her career immediately following her 
affair with her teacher, Rodin. Excellent 
film about the madness of an artist. 

4. Antonia 's Line (Dutch)- A matri- 
archal film about the lives of mothers 
and daughters. This film shows very 
strong, decisive women in a world of 

men and their continuing victories. This 
film is extremely funny and will keep 
you smiling throughout. 

5. // Postino (Italian)- A great love 
story full of beautiful images and even 
more beautiful poetry. This is a great date 

6. Raise the Red Lantern (Chinese)- 
This film depicts the claustrophobic 
lifestyle of married Chinese women. The 
lead is in an arranged marriage to a 
nobleman with multiple wives. The 
wives' ensuing competition for the fa- 
vor of the husband reflects the limited 
and tragic nature of their lives. 

7. Like Water for Chocolate (Mexi- 
can)- An excellent love story that shows 
a family's influence on individuals' lives 
in a rural Mexican village. 

8. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and 
Her Lover (British)- A surreal film that 
encompasses incredible lighting, color 
imagery and a bizarre plot. A great feat 
in cinematography, the sets and mood of 
the film make it worthwhile. 

9. Eat, Drink, Man, Woman (Japa- 
nese)-This film truly shows the impor- 
tance of food in Asian culture. The story 
is that of a typical Japanese father and 
daughter and their Sunday dinners, and 
how their lives change between these 

10. Nosferatu (German)- A classic 
horror film and the first shocking vam- 
pire film, the black and white master- 
piece is still scary and a surreal depic- 
tion of Dracula. 

Happy viewing (and reading).

Cabaret creates beautiful 
music for the student body 

The extremely talented musical group once 
again amazes audiences with its prowess 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

During Parents' Weekend, the 
cabaret performed to a packed house 
for, what everyone thought, the first 
and last time. The group made a last- 
ing impression and was asked to per- 
form again for the Board of Trustees 
in a private performance to christen 
the remodeled snack facilities. 

The cabaret group gave this per- 
formance in the refurbished snack bar 
on Feb. 7. A talented group of sing- 
ers, they wowed the trustees with their 
astonishing musical capabilities. On 
Feb. 9, these crooners once again 
brought their show to the student body. 

With Marcia Dills accompanying 
on piano, the 1 1 singers filled the caf- 
eteria with a wave of beautiful and 
often amusing musical selections. The 
group boasted a repertoire of Broad- 
way and show tunes from "Dentist" 
from Little Shop of Horrors to the soul- 
ful melodies from the Broadway mu- 
sical Beauty and the Beast. 

The brainchild of Alexa 
Schlimmer, Steve Willis and Marcia 
Dills, Cabaret was conceived last year 
as an addition to the fine arts depart- 
ment talent line-up. An invite-only 
group, these performers are spectacu- 
lar to watch and their performance 
leaves the audience with a sense of 


Give it up for Heflon's - High 
Point's hottest new night spot 

By Heather Sitler 

Staff Writer 

It's Thursday, and come 10 this 
evening, the weekend will have officially 
begun for some of us. So, what are your 
plans? Oh, how about House of Brews? 
Ouch, forgot, they shut down. 

So does this mean that it's going to 
be another Blockbuster night? I really 
don't th-ink so. (Ode to Alicia 
Silverstone's Cher.) Hey, I've got a bril- 
liant beyond brilliant idea, why not head 
out to Hefflon's? For many of us, it has 
long since alleviated the sting in our 
hearts inflicted by the closing of Brews, 
but there are still some of ya' s,on cam- 
pus who haven't got a clue. 

So, what exactly is the scoop on 
Hefflon's? Well, you'll be happy to 
know that the owners have so charitably 
continued the tradition of college night. 
Every Thursday night, you can walk into 
Hefflon's free of charge and dance your 
little heart out, assuming of course that 
that is what you are there for. 

My first impression? Eh. But, when 
I a-ctually made it through the front door 
and got to walk and not just stand in one 
spot (characteristic of the Brews experi- 
ence), I instantly loved the place. It is 
my new hole. Equipped with a few pool 

tables, a nostalgic black and white check- 
ered dance floor, and.of course, a DJ, 
Heflon's won't leave you sitting in a dark 
corner all alone, unless that's your thing. 

For those of you with an aversion to 
the dance floor/strobe light combo, get 
out of that dark corner and go check out 
the bar. Beer is reasonably priced, aver- 
aging at about $ 1 .50 a bottle. 

For those of you seeking the atmo- 
sphere without the beer, they also keep 
a variety of bottled waters and soda 
readily on hand. Located at 102 East 
Moore Avenue, off South Main St. be- 
hind the infamous Tiki Club (the Tiki 
Club?), it's a quick drive and easy to find 
(just look for all the cars with the High 
Point stickers). 

OK, sounds perfect, what's the 
catch? Well, they don't have their liquor 
license yet, but hey, who needs a screw- 
driver on a school night anyway? But, 
there is an upside. Heflon's will have a 
1 scat shuttle bus making trips directly 
from the front of HPU's campus center 
and back continuously throughout the 

Pick up begins at 8:30 p.m., and will 
make round trips every half hour until 2 
a.m. All you need is ycur HPU I.D., and 
you're on. So, see ya there(I'll be the 
one dancing on the pool table).

Shakur's legacy provides 
message against drug use 

By Melanie Kellam 

Staff Writer 

Gridlock' d, starring Tupac Shakur 
and Tim Roth, is a movie for all to see. 
It shows the harsh reality of the effects 
of drug abuse. 

Spoon (Tupac Shakur) and Stretch 
(Tim Roth) portray cocaine addicts, who 
decide to kick after their friend Cookie 
overdoses. Stretch has contracted HIV 
through his addiction, and Spoon has led 
a poor, unsuccessful life due to his habit. 

As the audience goes through a day 
in the life of Spoon and Stretch, the hor- 
rible reality of drug abuse becomes alive. 

The audience can imagine their sis- 
ters, brothers, sons, daughters, mothers, 
fathers or friends on drugs. No one can 
escape the existence of drugs in today's 
society, according to the theme of 

Gridlock d. 

The addicts in the movie are very 
diverse. There are white, black, Chinese, 
male and female. That is to show that 
drug abuse doesn't just affect one race 
or one gender. 

Throughout the movie Spoon flashes 
back to all the times he got high and how 
much fun he believed those times to be. 
All those so-called fun times led him to 

At the end, the movie jumps back to 
a musical poetry performance that 
Spoon, Stretch and Cookie did at a lo- 
cal club the night before. The song sums 
up the reality of a drug addict. The song 
compares an addict's life to being in a 
traffic jam, wanting to get somewhere 
but being stuck. That's what drugs do to 
you — they hinder your dreams and tal- 


Two bands with High Point 
connections rock Flappers 

Deep Water excites audience with classic rock; 
Freshman Jessee Morriss jams on bass for Bandole ' 

By Andrew T. White 

Staff Writer 

Last Saturday I went to Flappers 
Sportsbar and Flipside to see two 
bands play. The first was Bandole' 
from Atlanta. Though they arc from 
out of town, they do have a few 
members that you may know. 
Freshman Jessee Morris, who has 
written for the Chronicle, is the bass 
player for the group. Also as a special 
guest was sophomore Mike Boyce, 
who played the Djmbe, a percussion 

Vocalist Sean Wilborne said the 
name Bandole' came from Natural 
Wonders, a mall store, where he saw 
the name Bandole' on a easy listening 
CD. He found that it was the name of 
a god in an old gypsy talc that shined 
on anyone who listened to or played 
music for pure enjoyment. He thought 
that this was a good name for a band 
even though at the time there was no 

The band said that they were 
influenced by the Dave Mathews 
Band and Wide Spread Panic. All the 
band's songs were originals except 
for one Jimi Hcndrix song. Bandole' 
had an amazing amount of charisma, 
which was greatly reflected in the 
crowd as they enjoyed themselves 

Freshman Kat Hoffman said, "I 
thought they were great. I hadn't 
heard of them before, and they were 
better than I expected." 

Freshman Shaun Vincent agreed, 
saying, "I liked 'em. They had a good 
mix of country and rock 'n roll sort 
of like the Allman Brothers — I like 

Bandole', even though their 
members are spread out, has been 
together for the past two years and 
has built a strong Atlanta following . 

The band says they are on the road a 
lot. Bandole' has a gig every weekend 
and in April will be traveling to 
Pennsylvania to play. In June Bandole ' 
will be coming out with its first CD. I 
strongly suggest checking this band 
out, and watch for them when they 
return to the Piedmont. 

The next band was Deep Water, a 
local group composed mostly of High 
Point students. Deep Water's members 
are Brent Ward-bass, Wellington 
DeSouza-keyboards, Chris Hendrix- 
vocals and guitar, Matt McClendon- 
harmonica and Seth Carter playing the 
guitar. The name Deep Water is a 
reference to the blues phrase "deep 
muddy water." This means getting 
down to one's roots which is the 
essence of the band's music. 

The members have been together 
for about five months but have played 
in other bands for about two years. The 
band was called Cousin Eddie and 
played original alternative and rock 
songs. In time they got fed up with 
those songs because they felt that there 
was no room for them to expand. So 
they decided to get back to their roots 
and play blues and classic rock. 

The band covered classic rock 
songs such as "Foxy Lady" and 
"Johnny B. Goode." The band was 
very energetic and had a good stage 
presence. I think everyone enjoyed it 
when Carter played the guitar behind 
his head. 

The crowd seemed to feed off of 
Deep Water's energy and danced 
through both sets of songs. During a 
few songs, members of Bandole' 
accompanied Deep Water in vocals 
and percussion. 

Deep Water, which has plans to 
record an album, will play again next 
Friday at Flappers with Fried Chicken. 
It figures to be a great show with Deep 
Water at the mike.

Star Wars entertains with new effects 
in addition to overlooked mistakes 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Finally the anticipation was over. The 
long-awaited rerelease date of the cul- 
tural icon, Star Wars, had arrived. At the 
local Carmike, people were lined up at 
10 in the morning to ensure themselves 
a seat at one of the night's showings. 
Thanks to Student Activities, my friends 
and I had our tickets in hand at 2 p.m. 
without even having to leave the room. 

Because we had been informed that 
all showings had been sold out, we left 
for the theatre almost an hour in advance. 
When we arrived, we picked seats close 
enough to become absorbed in both sight 
and sound and settled back to enjoy the 

As the lights dimmed and the pre- 
views flashed across the screen for The 
Empire Strikes Back and Return of the 
Jedi, I felt like a kid with a new toy. I 
could barely contain myself as the famil- 
iar theme song boomed from the speak- 
ers. When the opening scene flashed 
across the screen, I heaved a self- satis- 
fied sigh and gazed in wonder at the 
massive star destroyer that chased Leia's 
tiny ship. The details were nothing I had 
ever seen in my grainy video at home. 

However, the wonder of seeing Star 
Wars on the big screen for the first time 
wore off. My friends and I found our- 


selves waiting for the next new clip and 
becoming critical of the mistakes we had 
never paid attention to before. 

The digitally enhanced footage and 
extra scenes really didn't do much to the 
film other than make the audience say 
"ooh" more times than had they not been 
added. Some scenes were entertaining, 
especially when Han Solo steps on 
Jabba the Hut, but they didn't change 
the fact that Star Wars is a pretty slow 
movie. I never realized 'hat having the 
luxury of a pause button could spoil a 
person so much. 

It was fun picking out the mistakes, 
though. For instance, how could some- 
one who just came out of a garbage bin 
be perfectly clean? Leia's hair and lip 
gloss had amazing staying power, 
through three firefights and a jump into 
hyper-space. Maybe it's Maybelline. 
Let's not forget nobody could decide 
how to pronounce Obi-Wan and 
Alderaan. But my personal favorite was 
after the Death Star had been destroyed. 
Luke jumps out of his X-wing and yells 
for Carrie rather than Leia. 

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely 
loved seeing Star Wars on the big screen 
but after you see a film so many times 
it's hard to just sit back and let it go. I 
fully intend to see the sequels as well 
and hope I have just as much fun with 

Cardigans seduce listeners with soft 
warm sounds in First Band on the Moon 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

The light sounds of a chirping 
cuckoo open the surprising and 
nostalgic album First Band on the Moon 
by The Cardigans. From that point on, 
the great pop melodies of this Swedish 
group push this album past the pretty 
wallpaper music it easily could have 
been. The result is a very good album 
by a European sissy group that is 
stronger than it appears. 

The Cardigans' first big hit was the 
friendly single, "Lovefool," but their 
album succeeds with catchy, intelligent 
lyrics. The lead singer, Nina Persson, 
has a beautiful and wispy voice that 
sounds delicate and tender in just about 
every track. This makes lyrics such as 
"Maybe I was your whore/who can ask 
me for more?" and "I'm your personal 
pro, you know" from "Been It" startling 
and even pleasing. 

At times, The Cardigans can sound 
like Ace of Base with trite lyrical 
offerings such as "I love you tonight/ 
you are my knight" from 
"Heartbreaker." But great pop lullabies 

like "The Great Divide" are rare, and 
the surprising lyrical prowess shown in 
"Never Recover," an up-tempo sad 
song, demonstrate the ability of a great 
pop band to creep into your head with 
its lyrics. 

The musical identity of The 
Cardigans recalls something akin to the 
Love, American Style theme song. The 
whole album could be a soundtrack for 
a James Bond movie — maybe 
Moonraker. The group's ability to offer 
nostalgia in a (mostly) quick-witted 
manner to modern music listeners is 
what makes First Band on the Moon a 
necessary antidote to whine-rock. Bring 
on some more of this sissy stuff.

Perkins 1 hard life presented in new book 

The Psycho star was stereotyped as a real-life Norman Bates for most of his life 

By Brian Ersalesi 

Staff Writer 

Until his death in 1992, Anthony 
Perkins lived in the public shadow of 
his most famous screen creation, 
Norman Bates. The 1960 Hitchcock 
favorite, Psycho, catapulted the star to 
a public status that he was neither ready 
for, nor comfortable with. Charles 
Winecroft, in Split Image, unmasks the 
real Anthony Perkins with incredible 
skill. Perkins' life reads like a wonder- 
ful novel. When the book is finished 
and the reader reflects upon what he has 
just read, the incredible sadness of this 
lonely man's life can do nothing but lin- 

Tony Perkins began his theatrical 
life as the son of a star. Osgood Perkins 
was a notable stage and screen actor 
who lived life by and for the stage. He 
was not an integral part of his son's life. 
Osgood Perkins died in 1 937. Tony was 

Like Norman Bates, some say that 
Tony Perkins had an unnatural relation- 
ship with his mother. Like the line in 
Psycho says, "A boy's best friend is his 

In an interview with People Maga- 
zine years later, a 51 -year- old Perkins 
was quoted as saying, "Because loving 
my mother was connected with killing 
my father, it became dangerous to love 
my mother." 

That danger prompted him to leave 

home and go to college in 
Florida. It was at Rollins 
College that Tony began to 
develop his craft and let his 
sexuality emerge. Tony 
Perkins is remembered by 
old classmates as "a quiet, 
rather shy individual who 
spent a lot of time seemingly 
dreaming." It was here that 
his homosexuality began to 
emerge. It was also here that 
Tony Perkins first tasted the 
discrimination that goes 
along with being a homo- 
sexual in the 1940s. 
Winecroft suggests that this 
early prejudice would lead 
to his public denial of his ho- 
mosexuality in later years. 

Following his life at 
Rollins College, Perkins be- 
came a name in the New 
York theatre circuit. Perhaps 
his most famous Broadway 
role came as he took on Tom Lee in Rob- 
ert Anderson's Tea and Sympathy. The 
character of Lee chronicled Perkins' life 
in a strange way. "Perkins was more than 
right; he'd already lived the part of the 
guitar-strumming, poetic college boy 
who prefers music 'o football and is ac- 
cused of homosexuc lity because of it." 
He won raves from tht critics in this role. 

Tony bounced from role to role as he 
made a name for himself in New York. 
His public life was sadly strained. As a 

gay man in the 1950s, he had to hide his 
lifestyle. Old lovers remember him as a 
man who would not even risk walking 
with them on the street. 

Eventually, Hollywood found Tony. 
His first film was with Gary Cooper, 
called Friendly Persuasion. It was not 
a success. 

Sadly, none of Perkins' films were 
huge successes. He seemed apt to land 
in films that sadly miscast him. 
Strangely enough, after James Dean 

died, the studios were struggling for a 
replacement for the angst-ridden gen- 
eration. Tony was brought in to do just 
that. It did not work. 

To satisfy the homosexual urges that 
both delighted and disgraced Tony, he 
took to hitchhiking across country. 
Stuart Miller, a friend, remembers, 
"Tony thought hitchhiking was a won- 
derful way to know people without hav- 
ing to know them." It was a perfect way 
for Tony to satisfy himself and hide from 
the criticisms of the public eye. 

Finally, Psycho came along, and 
Tony was at last a household name. His 
chilling portrayal of the mother-loving 
misogynist, Norman Bates, brought him 
to national attention. That attention was 
not as an actor. Public audiences mis- 
took him for a psychopath in real life as 
well. His film offers declined, and later 
in life his only true successes were in 
the sequels to the movie that made him 
a name. 

Tony Perkins died in 1992 of com- 
plications of AIDS. It is interesting to 
note that the movie that made Tony 
Perkins a name also took away his iden- 
tity. When he died, headlines regaled the 
public with the details of how the 
"Psycho Star" had died. 

Tony Perkins was laid to rest, but 
Charles Winecroft has made sure that 
his legacy lives on, not in the celluloid 
closet of Hollywood but in the pages of 
this wonderfully rich and touching por- 
trayal of Anthony Perkins.

The men's and women's tennis teams

Cristy and young guns hope to 
end baseball team's losing ways 

By Vince Pulupa 

with staff reports 

With the spring season underway, 
the men's baseball team is looking to 
improve on its 2-5 record. 

The lineup features a wealth of 
young talent which assistant coach 
Brian Kemp believes will determine the 
success of this year's squad. 

"We have some very talented, qual- 
ity young players on our team," Kemp 
said. "We only have two starting se- 
niors and a couple of starting juniors; 
the rest are freshman and sophomores." 

Freshmen outfielders Chad 
Shoffner and Buddy Webb and fresh- 
men pitchers Jason Brcnnan and Paul 
Wirth are expected to make sizable 

The team's strength seems to be its 
defense and its pitching staff, led by 
returning starters Joe Cristy and Brad 
Albert. Third-baseman Matt Griffin is 
coming off a .300 campaign. However, 
the team's overall inexperience con- 
cerns the coaching staff. 

"When it comes to'hitting, our guys 
are young and haven't seen a lot of col- 
lege pitching," Kemp said. "Athleti- 
cally, they are very capable of hitting 
well; they just need a little more expo- 
sure to collegiate pitchers." 

The new talent may prove vital 
because HPU finished last in the 
CVAC last year and failed to qualifty 
for the year-end conference tourna- 
ment, to be held at Longwood this 

In addition to the new faces on the 
field, the coaching staff has expanded 
with two new coaches. Bugsy Brown 
(pitching) and Al Woods (hitting) make 
up the added personnel. Woods is a 
former player from High Point. 

Kemp acknowledged, "We feel like 
we're prepared for the upcoming sea- 
son. And most importantly, everyone 
is basically healthy and injury free. 

"The two new coaches are doing 
an excellent job and are fitting in nicely 
with the program. The goal is to make 
the conference tournament in mid- 
April and to perform the best we can." 

Top-ranked roommates... 

Freshmen Andrea Avello and Katherine Stephenson not only room 
together, they also provide the No. 1 doubles tandem for the women's 
tennis team. In singles, Avello plays No. 1 and Stephenson plays No. 3. 

Men's track preps for winning season 
with abundance of distance runners 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

Once again, the men's track and field 
team is ready to stride through another 
season. Last year the men's team finished 
third in the conference. But now the 
team's hope for being on top is feasible. 

"We're going to be improved. There's 
no doubt about it," said coach Bob 
Davidson. The core of the team is back 
to meet challenges with junior Christian 
Kell, who finished second in the 3000m 
steeplechase at last year's championship 
meet and sophomore standout Mike 
Souhrada, who ended last year with a 
second-place finish in the high hurdles. 

Last year's freshman sensation David 
Duggan, along with junior Shon 
Hildreth, will be competing in the 5000 
and 1000 meter events. Adding to the 
competition in these events will be fresh- 
men Mark Klamarus and Ron Davis. 

David Duggan, 
5000 meters 

Leading in the 

weight events will 

be sophomore Chad 

Baucom. He had a 

successful rookie 

season which gave 

him a second-place 

conference finish in 

the discus. Baucom 

hopes to improve 

on last year's per- 

"This year's team should be a lot 
stronger than last year's. We've recruited 
a few more sprinters which we have 
needed to be on top," said Baucom. 

During the offseason the men have 
been working their butts off in the weight 
room. "We lifted weights in the off-sea-

Five seniors lead dominant golf team 

By Sonny Gann 

Athletic Yearbook writer 

Consistency is important in any 
sport. Consistency is what led the golf 
team to a ?-? record and ?? national rank- 
ing in 1996. 

All-conference performers Charles 
Davis and Luc Mongrain have departed 
from that team, but six newcomers, along 
with six capable veterans make up this 
talented team. 

Five seniors should give the contin- 
gent lots of experience. Tony Romani is 
a three-time Academic All- America and 
pretty consistent golfer as well. Adam 
Pranger, David Faulkner, Donnie Franks 
and Jason Pranger also return for their 
senior campaigns. Franks, conference 
champion in 1995, is back after rehabili- 
tating an injured knee all of last season. 

Junior Pete Santacasa and sopho- 
more Adam Pranger also return after 
solid seasons. Freshman Tom Moore, 

Donnie Franks 
is back for his 
final year 

from Ontario, 
Canada, leads the 
crop of newcomers. 
Moore has played in 
the British and Ca- 
nadian Amateur 
championships and 
brings a great deal 
of experience. 

Other newcom- 
ers include sopho- 
mores Jason 
Brownell and Eric Trees, and freshmen 
Tyler Baughman and Justin Duke. 

"The team gets better and better ev- 
ery year," coach Dee Sasser said. "There 
is going to be a great deal of competi- 
tion. This is the most depth we've ever 
had. The top three or four players con- 
stantly improve because they have to

Panthers improve as Sp8 
climbs career scoring ranks 

By Tracy Snclbaker 

Staff Writer 

After a roller coaster first half of the 
year, the Panthers went on a five-game 
winning streak that made them competi- 
tive once more in the Carolinas- Virginia 
Athletic Conference. 

The men (12-11, 9-9 CVAC) have 
clawed their way back into the thick of 
the conference by improving all aspects 
of their game. "We've played pretty good 
the last five or seven ballgames," coach 
Jerry Steele said. "We've played a lot 
harder, a little bit smarter, and the de- 
fense has improved." 

Brett Speight leads the team, aver- 
aging nearly a double-double in scoring 
(21 .4) and rebounding (9.9). And every 
point he scores moves him farther up the 
career scoring list at HPU. Entering last 
Saturday's game at Coker, Speight was 
third on the scoring list with 171 1 points. 
He trailed only ex-NBA player and 
coach Gene Littles (2398) and Pete 
Collins (1838). 

Tracy Gross (14.4 pts., 5.9 assists) 
and Chad Reeves have also shown con- 
sistency on the offensive end for the Pan- 
thers. Reeves, who joined the team at 
the beginning of the semester, is aver- 
aging 14.1 points and has been a factor 
on the boards pulling down eight a game. 

The team has gone through some 
personnel changes since the beginning 
of the semester. While the team has 
added Reeves and Prentice Woods, it lost 
Jason Panourgias to a broken hand after 
only five games. Steele hopes to get a 
redshirt for the native of Greece.

During his four-year career at HPU, Brett Speight has scrapped and 
clawed his way to No. 3 on the school's all-time scoring list.

Angelo Pipes and sophomore Maurice 
Madison, have helped improve the Pan-

High Point will host the CVAC tour- 
nament, Feb. 24-March 1 , with the win- 
ner getting an automatic bid to the Di- 
vision II tournament. Coach Steele be- 
lieves the key for the Panthers to do well 
in the tournament is defense. 

"If we are going to have a chance in 
the tournament, we are going to have to 
play good team defense." 

If the men play some sound collec- 
tive defense, maybe it can make a re- 
peat visit to the Division II playoffs.

Curtis scores clutch threes to 
aid in overtime win at Coker 

The Lady Panthers, with 20 wins under 
their belt, battle first-place Longwood 
Saturday in the regular-season finale 

Center Erin Weatherstone dribbles to the baseline in a recent game 
against Coker (top). Below, No. 14 Dee Pennix gets ready to take a pass 
from Weatherstone. The Lady Panthers are second in the CVAC with a 
20-4, 16-2 record. 

By Ben Eckman 

Special to the Chronicle 

The women's basketball players are 
by no means thieves, but they stole a bas- 
ketball game at Coker Saturday night for 
a 76-69 overtime win. 

Coker out-played, out-hustled and 
out-rebounded the Panthers for the ma- 
jority of (he game. The Panthers were 
down from the opening lay-up. Every 
time they would light back and cut the 
lead to two or three, Coker would hit a 
key shot to put the lead back at live or 
six. Most ol those shots were hit by 
Coker's Stacy Albright, who had 23 

But, the Lady Panthers proved that 
they are a great team, not just a good 
one. A good team will lose a game when 
it's not playing well. However, a great 
team will find a way to win despite a 
bad game. 

The Panthers were down by 10 with 
five minutes to go, but they followed the 
example of team leader and All-America 
candidate Karen Curtis, who hit two 
clutch threes including one which 

brought them within three. 

With 1 3 seconds to go, Kelly Cioode 
grabbed a key rebound and gave the ball 
to freshman sensation Annie Miller, who 
drained the tying three-pointer. The 
game would enter OT 

In OT Karen Curtis scored eight of 
the Panthers' 1 1 points. She finished the 
night with 30 points and nine rebounds, 
followed by Dee Pennix who had 16 
points. The Panthers rolled to victory, 
their 20th ol the season, making their 
overall record 20-4 and 16-2 in the 

following tonight's game against St. 
Andrews, the season's biggest game 
comes Saturday against arch-rival 
Longwood. It will be the last regular sea- 
son game for seniors Tiffanie Wilson and 
Erin Weatherstone. 

The game will be a war with high 
stakes. The Panthers are No. 2 in the 
CVAC and No.7 in the East Region, 
while Longwood is No. 1 in the CVAC 
and No.4 in the East. A win here for the 
Panthers would put them in prime posi- 
tion to go to the Regional tournament.

Remember baseball 
the way it used to be 
- when it was fun? 

By Red Messner 

Staff Writer 

With the busy schedules everyone has in the 
fast-paced '90s, we sometimes forget to stop and 
take a look back at what we enjoyed growing up. 
The older we get, the more we start to understand 
why sports are more and more a business. Re- 
flect on your summers as a kid in the '80s, when 
baseball was in full swing and all we saw it as 
was a sport. This is the team I would want. 

At first base wc have a man whose nickname 
was the sport that he played, "Donnie Baseball." 
Number 23, decked out in pinstripes typified gritty 
luircl work and a batting average that was always 
around or above the .300 mark. Even though he 
spent his career without winning a World Series 
ring, Don Mattingly himself was a winner. 

Our second baseman comes from the Windy 
City, Ryne Sandberg. The Chicago Cubs were a 
losing organization in the early '80s and then in 
1983 wc saw the savior break in with the club. 
Sandberg's all around dominance of this position 
led the Cubs to the playoffs in 1984 and gave 
Harry Caray something to really sing about. 

To complement Sandberg, our shortstop is a 
hometown hero who donned the number eight, 
Cal Ripken Jr. Wc all know about the streak, but 
Ripken did more than just play everyday; he 
played well. He won the rookie of the year award 
in 1982 and was voted most valuable player in 
1983 for the American League. He continued 
through the '80s hitting 20 or more home runs each 
season and racking up gold gloves left and right. 
Rounding out the infield at third we have red 
pinstripes and a red number 20. Mike Schmidt 
led a successful Philadelphia Phillies team by hit- 
ting for power and using his great reflexes to stab 
balls at the hot corner. Schmidt would be a key 
power source for this squad. 

In the outfield we mix speed, power and all- 
around batting average. In left we have Tony 
Gwynn of San Diego Padres. Every year, Gwynn 
flirted with a .400 average, usually ending up 
around .330. We want Gwynn to bat second to 
help move our center fielder around the bases, if 
he doesn't do it himself. I'm talking about Ricky 
Henderson, who is our leadoff batter and the great 
base stealer in the history of the game. 

Not only can he steal bases but we'll get some 
power from him as well, holding the record for 
leading off a game with a homerun. We go down 
south to get our right fielder. Number three from 
the Altanta Braves, Dale Murphy, complements 
our outfield with a whole lot of power and one of 
the strongest arms in the game. 

At catcher we need a passport because he 
played north of the border. The Montreal Expos' 
Gary Carter played hard and well behind the plate. 
He was a very intelligent player and we need him 
to keep the team focused. 

Our starting pitchers are flame-throwers and 
strike-out kings. Nolan Ryan is our righty and 
Steve Carlton is the lefty. Combined, these two 
collected over 10,000 strikeouts with Ryan hurl- 
ing a record five no-hitters. Coming out of the 
bullpen we'll take a long-haired Dennis Eckersly. 
The "Eck" redefined the term "closer"in the '80s, 
leading the Oakland Athletics to a few playoff 

To gain some more power, we will use the 
designated hitter and take Dave Winfield. He hit 
monster shots that used to soar out of Yankee Sta- 
dium and he will do the same for us. 

We'll ask Tommy Lasorda to be the manager. 
Not only was he a winner; he made a great wiz- 
ard on the "Baseball Bunch" Saturday Mornings. 
We ha"e assembled a team here that will make 
us proud and win a whole lot of games. Don't for- 
get your childhood heroes; they are one of the 
purest things you have in your life.

Column One News | 

Curtis named NCAA 
Div. II Ail-American 

Karen Curtis, High Point's pro- 
lific point guard, was named to the 
NCAA Div. II All-American first 
team on Tuesday. 

The team consists of the nation's 
10 hest Div. II women's baskethall 
players, as voted on by the Women's 
Basketball Coaches Association. 

Curtis, a jun- 
ior from Cary, 
led the Lady 
Panthers to their 
third straight 
conference tour- 
nament champi- 
onship and two 
victories in the 
Div. II nationals. 
She finished the season averag- 
ing 25. 1 points and 8. I rebounds per 
game while shooting 50.7 percent 
from the floor. 

"I wasn't expecting this," said 
Curtis, who turned in IX douhle- 
douhies and one triple-double this 
season. "Out ol the individual goals 
i set when i came to HPU. All-Ameri- 
can was my ultimate goal. But there's 
always room lor improvement." 

Oddly, Curtis was not named the 
Carolinas- Virginia Athletic Confer- 
ence's Player of the Year. That award 
went to Longwood's Nikki Hall be- 
fore High Point and Longwood met 
in the conference finals. 

Curtis responded by winning her 
third straight tournament MVP 
award, scoring 36 points and grab- 
bing 14 boards in the championship 
game to Hall's seven. 

The 5-foot-2 Curtis also aver- 
aged 5.1 assists and 3.7 steals per 
game in helping the Lady Panthers 
to a 26-6 record.

Basketball teams win CVAC 
tournament, grab victories 
in NCAA Div. II nationals 

From staff reports 

The men's and women's basketball teams took top honors in 
the Carolinas- Virginia Athletic Conference tournament March 
1 in the Millis Center. 

The men won their first CVAC tournament after three con- 
secutive years of second-place tournament finishes. High Point 
entered as the No. 4 seed but defeated Queens, 81-78, in the 
finals to earn an automatic berth in the NCAA Div. II nationals. 

In the first round at nationals, the men downed Pittsburgh- 
Johnstown, 94-92, in overtime behind 27 points and 1 7 rebounds 
from center Chad Reeves. High Point lost, 91-82, to Salem- 
Teikyo, the nation's No. 2 team, in the following round, capping 
a magical second half of the season that yielded an 18-12 record. 

The women smacked Longwood, 84-60, to win their third 
conference title in a row (second in the CVAC's two-year his- 
tory). High Point won its first two games at nationals before 
losing, 70-68, in the third round to Edinboro. The Lady Pan- 
thers finished the season 26-6.

Before you knock security, take a look 
at these behind-the-scenes concerns 


Public Safety Director Ed Cannady often can be seen 
patrolling the campus in his golf cart. In an effort to reduce 
crime, Cannady has a budget proposal which will require 
at least two security officers to be on duty at all times. 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

Security — we students com- 
plain about these guys, but are 
our complaints legitimate? 

The only perennial gripe is 
about parking, and with the ex- 
ception of the Thcta Chis, most 
students do feel safe on campus. 
But little credit is given to the 
officers, whom students are 
quick to blame when a crime 

There are seven full-time 
officers, and one part-time of- 
ficer on the security staff. They 

all have previous experience in 
law enforcement and are trained 
in first aid and CPR. But is this 
enough to protect our campus? 

Four nights a week there is 
only one officer on duty to cover 
33 campus buildings This has 
some people worried because 
of the break-ins at the ThetaChi 
house and the attempted theft of 
the big screen television from 
the campus center. In both cases, 
there was only one safety of- 
ficer on duly. 

But sometimes other factors 
are at play when it comes to 
crime prevention. 

Ed Cannady, director of pub- 
lic safety, said, "I personally 
accept responsibility that the 
bushes had not been trimmed 
and that the lighting had not 
been installed at the Theta Chi 
house during Christmas break." 

Security feels that trimming 
the bushes and adding lighting 
would have given the house 
more visibility and deterred 

However, security is also at- 
tempting to increase personnel.

Give student-trainers the credit 
they deserve during senior night 

Trainers should be recognized 
alongside scholar athletes 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

High Point honored ils basketball 
seniors and scholar-athletes I ; eb. 22 dur- 
ing the final regular-season home game. 
Athletes from all sports were recognized 
lor their outstanding play and accom- 
plishments in the classroom. 

While the halftime ceremony was 
done with supreme class, there was one 
group that was oddly missing - the stu- 
dent trainers. Yes, there was an an- 
nouncement that asked the trainers to 
stand and be recognized, but then .... 
silence. What about their names being 
announced so they, loo, could get rec- 

Although these students do not appear 
on an official roster, they are just as im- 
portant as any of the athletes recognized. 
They put in as much time at the athletic 
fields as the athletes do. When the team 
travels, the student-trainers follow. 

Athletes attend practices and must 
improve required skills to a certain level 
before being able to participate on the 
field. Trainers are no different. They 
must put in time off the performance 
fields to learn and improve their skills 
in order to help the athletes. 

Yes, there are no games and official 
standings for trainers. Unless there is an 
injury, they go unnoticed. But if I am not 
mistaken, there arc no official standings 
for cheerleading. However, no one dis- 

putes the fact that they must spend time 
practicing for games and are as much a 
part of the games as anyone. So what is 
the difference '.' 

Granted, being a trainer for a team is 
part of their major, but student-trainers 
are assigned to more than one team. So 
when one season ends, the trainers do 
not have the rest of the school year off 
to concentrate on their school work. 
Unlike most athletes, the trainer moves 
on to another spot where he/she has to 
be at all practices and travel with the 
learn wherever it goes. 

Students are not recognized for the 
academic achievements as much as their 
athletic achievements. Awarding certifi- 
cates and having them received in front 
of a full gym during senior night is a 
great way to recognize an athlete. 

However, next year, let's recognize 
the student-trainers so we can have all 
scholar-athletes recognized for their ac-

Curtis and Speight have given university 
prestige through basketball greatness 

Rob Humphreys 


High Point basket- 
hall was once 
again the jewel of 
the Carolinas- Virginia Ath- 
letic Conference. Credit 
Karen Curtis and Brett 
Speight for that. 

Year after year, these two have 
shined among the top men's and 
women's players in the league. This 
campaign was no exception. 

Speight, who finished his four-year 
career at High Point with 1 ,877 points, 
moved into second behind Gene Littles 
on the school's all-time scoring list. 
After the first game of this season, the 
physical 6-foot-9 power forward told 
reporters he wanted to be "The Den- 
nis Rodman of the CVAC." He lived 
up to his word, registering 21 .6 points 
and 9.6 rebounds per game. 

Curtis, a spunky junior point guard, 
led the Lady Panthers to a 26-6 record 
while grabbing All-America honors 
and her third straight CVAC tourna- 
ment MVP award. The 5-foot-2 
powderkeg exploded for 25.1 points 
and 5.1 assists per game and led the 
team in rebounding with 7.8 boards per 
outing. She could be the first woman 
whose jersey is retired by HPU. 

"My goal was for the school to 
know I came through here," said 
Curtis, whose 1,950 career points is 
two shy of second place at HPU. "I was 
sent to High Point for a reason." 
Speight also came to the university 

for a reason. Through his 
father, baseball coach Jim 
Speight, he developed an 
early love for the institution 
"When I first met Coach 
(Jerry) Steele, I was five 
years old," Speight said, "I 
grew up around this univer- 
sity. Having a good friend- 
ship with Coach Steele was 
a good way to pave the road for a 
player-coach relationship. He's been 
like a father to me." 

Speight's blue-collar hustle and 
"take-one-for-the-team" playing style 
helped the Panthers to an 83-36 record 
and two national postseason appear- 
ances over the last four years. High 
Point finished 18-12 this season and 
won a first-round game in the NCAA 
Div. II national tournament. 

Speight, who student teaches at 
Northwest Guilford HS, seeks to con- 
tinue his basketball career overseas or 
with any team showing interest. 

"I don't want to be picky," he said. 
"I want to keep playing. I want to go 

Under Speight and Curtis, the bas- 
ketball teams have established them- 
selves as yearly forerunners in the 
CVAC. Season-to-season, High Point 
demands respect from every confer- 
ence team. 

"We've won our share of games," 
Speight said. "It's been fun having some 
winning seasons and being feared in the

ing HPU two teams to fear.

Books of Passage passes on a golden opportunity 

This collection of essays has some hidden gems, but too 
much mediocre work makes it fall short of its potential 

By Katrina Breitenbach 

Staff Writer 

For the "ordinary" person, books are 
books - to be read, sometimes to be re- 
read, occasionally to be held onto and 
remembered for years to come. 

But for the writer, books can be so 
much more - from treasure troves to 
teachers, from jolts of reality to the joys 
of language. That is the central idea of 
Books of Passage, a collection of essays 
that appeared in The Raleigh News and 
Observer over a three-and-a-half year 
period. In it, 27 North Carolina writers 
describe their Encounters with the books 
they consider to have changed their lives. 

Such a book should sing like a pro- 
fessional opera company or glitter and 
gleam like a pile of precious stones. But 
readers may have to dig a while to find 
the gems in this book and wait through 
several singers to hear those whose 
voices soar to the rafters; for most of the 
writers in this book, this is not among 
their best work. 

To begin with, some of them have 
their own agendas. Toril Moi, for ex- 
ample, seems more interested in push- 
ing her new book on Simone de Beauvoir 
than in how Beauvoir's book, The Sec- 
ond Sex, changed her life; Moi mentions 

her own book three times, but Beauvoir's 
only twice. 

On the other hand, it is difficult to 
tell just what Reynolds Price's agenda 
is. He begins his essay with biting sar- 
casm regarding the very subject of this 
book-that books can change our lives: 
"Any adult whose life is changed, really 
changed-by the reading of a book is 
likely to be unstable at least if not bark- 
ing mad." After such a beginning, some 
readers may be tempted to skip over the 
rest of the essay. 

Indeed, many of the essays in this 
book, at some point in their progress, 
tempt the reader to merely skip over 
them, to not bother finishing. There are 
complex sentences that are difficult 
enough to read in book form; they must 
have seemed tedious in the narrow space 
of a newspaper column. 

Then there are passages which sim- 
ply try too hard. One which appears at 
the end of Linda Flowers' column be- 
gins with sparkle, only to fade off like a 
half-finished thought; "Writing waits 
upon perception and thinking, and be- 
cause it shook me up, the book has made 
me do more of each-and, I am sure, do 
them better." 

Yet there are gems in this pile of cut 
glass. Fred Chappell's essay has flashes

of wonderful humor as he writes of Julia 
Child and her Mastering the Art of 
French Cooking. Howard Owen's essay 
on the Chip Hilton books of his child- 
hood is fresh and surprising as it sug- 
gests that squeaky-clean young adult 
novels can, as he puts it, "enlighten and 
entertain at the same time." 

Hal Crowther's essay on Alan 
Paton's Cry, The Beloved Country and 
Clyde Edgerton's essay on Emerson are 
thought-provoking, if not inspiring, as 
they speak to the issues of race and iden- 

Robert Morgan's essay on Tolstoy's 
War and Peace should be as eye-open- 
ing for the reader as it was for Morgan: 
"Reading War and Peace suggested to 
me that I did not live just in the Green 

River valley, in the Blue Ridge Moun- 
tains, but in the world, in the stream of 

Phillip Manning goes a step further. 
He almost demands action of the reader 
as he writes of how Aldo Leopold's A 
Sand Country Almanac changed him 
from a hunter to a conservationist: "In 
an age that encourages short-term eco- 
nomic growth. We must relearn the les- 
sons Leopold taught about the land as 
community. The air we breathe, the wa- 
ter we drink, and the soil that feeds us 
depend on it." 

Perhaps the best essay is Philip 
Gerard's encounter with William 
Styron's Sophie's Choice. He pulls his 
readers into the cab of an air-conditioned 
diesel moving van and takes them bar- 
reling down the highway with him as he 
travels from Las Vegas to California, 
from a woman's broken heirlooms to his 
own realizations about loss, from dreams 
of being a writer to the profound reality 
of writing. Gerard's essay sings like an 
old folk ballad that haunts your memory. 

But there are more flat notes in this 
book than beautiful melodies. Too many 
of the essays fail to reach the potential 
they could have had. A book like this 
should tug at the heart and mind like a 
kite soaring on the wind. Unfortunately, 
more often than not. Books of Passage 
leaves the reader with only an empty kite 

Inner-city basketball provides safety 
for otherwise violent gang members 

By Blake Zach 

Staff Writer 

The chaos of war ends with the rising sun in southeast D.C. 
Sporadic explosions of hand-held cannons die into shallow 
echoes and are overcome by the rhythmic beat of a basketball. 

Boys arrive wearing symbolic colors and tattoos of affilia- 
tion. But they have left their guns in the car and their argu- 
ments on the curb. They step on the caged court with a respect 
few will ever know. A respect for the game. The ball becomes 
an instrument and the player a musician. Each boy expresses 
himself in the only way he can. 

Six-pack gets the ball and drives the lane. He is 17 and has 
lived in D.C. all his life. He got his nickname a year ago when 
a rival gang member shot six rounds from a .22 caliber into his 
chest. He scores on his opponent despite giving up several 
inches of height. 

X, for Xavier, is a 33-year-old Muslim. He is considered an 
old-timer. He spots up from behind the faded arc and takes a 
shot. He has led the life of a "banger" and lived to talk about it. 
Now X plays ball, works every day at a convenience store and 
preaches to young men about the dangers of gang life. The ball 
bounces off iron and lands in the hands of Elmo. 

Elmo looks to pass up court. He just got home from a five- 
year prison sentence for manslaughter. His gang greets him 
with love and respect. "I love my brothers," he announces as 
he embraces the hand of one. He gets the ball to Don, a leader 
of a rival gang. 

This scene happens every day in the city. Thousands of kids 
walk onto the court to play the game. This is their only safe 
haven. The court in the city is a sacred place for anyone who 
has ever played there. Although an occasional push comes to 
shove, the matter is quickly solved with words and talents. 

Tonight, when the streets are dark, boys who played to- 
gether today will transform into distorted men who may even- 
tually kill one another. You see, on the court, warfare is never 
permitted. On the court, boys respect the love of the game. Off 
the court, distorted men become consumed by envy and greed. 
They must defend their lives. If that means killing another, so 
be it. 

When the game ends and the ball stops bouncing, very few 
words are said. Men from the same gangs embrace and con- 
gratulate one another. There are never plans for tomorrow's 
game. It would be too cocky to announce you will be alive. 
Such a statement could justify your death. But there will be a 
game tomorrow. The boys will return. The ball may become 
silent, but its beat remains true in the hearts of them all.

Eat how you want, because dining etiquitte 
does not always lead to dining pleasure 

By Melanie Kellam 

Staff Writer 

As I walked through the door, 
I immediately felt uncomfort- 
able. Everyone was acting as if 
he or she were having dinner 
with the president of the United 
States. I overlooked the atmo- 
sphere and just waited, with an- 
ticipation, for the good food I 
expected. Little did I know that 
the art of dining had nothing to 
do with good food. 

I sat at a diverse table. Some 
of the people knew a lot about 
etiquette, and some like me had 
no clue. The presenter, Jackie 
Byrd, explained the importance 
of dining with etiquette. She 
said etiquette is very important 
for our futures: "When you get 
jobs and go to office parties or 
dinner parties with your bosses, 
how you present yourselves will 
affect your status on the job." 

As I listened to Jackie, I be- 
came aware of how much ap- 
pearance plays a huge role in 

It was time for the first 
course, the appetizer. My stom- 

ach was growling, and I couldn't 
wait to eat. The servers, who 
were members of Pi Kappa Al- 
pha Fraternity and Alpha 
Gamma Delta Sorority , brought 
the appetizers out. 

As the servers approached 
my table, I couldn't believe my 
eyes. The appetizer consisted of 
four pieces of asparagus soaked 
in vinegar. I said to the table, 
"This has got to be a joke." One 
of the girls at my table re- 
sponded, "Don't you know that 
you are supposed to eat before 
going to dinner parties like 
these? That way you won't look 

The next course was the 
soup. I thought to myself, "OK, 
we get different courses, so 
maybe I'll be full when I leave. 
I began sipping my soup, when 
I noticed others at the table next 
to me staring with shock. 
"You're not supposed to sip your 
soup, and never put the spoon 
all the way in your mouth," 
Jackie explained. At this point 
eating was becoming very tir- 
ing. The soup was good, but I 
was ready for the meat. 

The entree was next. As the 
servers brought out the plates, I 
almost choked. I said to the table, 
"This cannot be the entree; this 
little bit of food couldn't feed a 
bird." I became very irritated as 
Jackie explained how to cut the 
chicken and which fork to use. 

A dinner salad or what I 
called "leaves soaked in oil" 
was next. Still hungry, I waited 
patiently for dessert. The des- 
sert was "the bomb." They 
served cheesecake with fresh 
strawberry topping. By this time, 
I threw etiquette out the door. I 
ate that cake in two minutes flat. 

The dinner was finally over, 
and I was relieved. Etiquette at 
dinner parties is a hard job to 
accomplish . For those who prac- 
tice etiquette, more power to 
you. For me, I feel that if the 
manners I already possess aren't 
good enough for friends, bosses 
or co-workers, forget them. My 
level of intelligence should not 
be judged on my practice of 
etiquette or my appearance. 

As I left the Campus Center, 
all I thought was "I wonder if 
Wendy's is still open."

Acoustic folk artist Del Suggs 
performs March 27 at 9 p.m. in 
the cafeteria. 

Floridian songwriter 
coming to campus for 
night of acoustic folk 

Del Suggs, one of Florida's premier 
performers, is coming to High Point 
March 27 for a 9 p.m. concert in the 
cafeteria. Admission is free. 

With his flowing ponytail and wal-

an acoustic/folk music magazine, said 
"His songwriting adeptness is a mar- 
velous blend of depth and perception 
that never fails to inject serious sub- 
ject matter with consistently entertain- 
ing music." 

Suggs has been featured on two

Honors Day features sessions for 
student research and leadership 

The morning assembly will 
recognize academic prowess; 
afternoon session applauds 
student leadership 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

Many students consider Honors Day 
a mini-vacation, a day to recover from 
the night before by sleeping in. The fac- 
ulty and administration believe that 
while some students take the holiday as 
a serious day of recognition, too many 
ignore the standards it creates for the uni- 
versity as an academic community. 

Occurring April 16, Honors Day 
opens with a 9 a.m. symposium in 
Haworth Hall. Two ceremonies follow 
in the Auditorium. At 1 1 a.m., academic 
awards will be distributed. At 2 p.m., 
campus life awards will be presented. At 
noon, there will be a picnic on the Green- 
sward. A special dinner in the cafeteria 
begins at 4:30. The Tower Players will 
perform Marvin's Room at 8 p.m. in the 
Empty Space Theater. 

Honors Day has graduated from be- 
ing a single ceremony to a full day of 
recognizing achievement. 

The symposium gives students the 
opportunity to present research they have 
done under a professor. 

Dr. Tom Albritton, director of the 
Honors Program, heads the symposium. 
He says, "This occasion gives students 
a chance to refine research in their fields 

in a professional way." Albritton says 
that the conference setting gives students 
public speaking experience, and it helps 
those applying to graduate schools be- 
cause it looks good on their resumes. 

Anyone who wants to present a pa- 
per can get an abstract application form 
from Albritton or by e-mailing Jenni- 
fer Gaunt (jgaunt). 

Albritton calls the symposium a 
"rare experience" for students to listen 
to their peers serve as experts on dif- 
ferent topics. 

Dr. Morris Wray, vice president of 
internal affairs, is in charge of campus 
life awards. He says, "The afternoon 
session is designed to encourage lead- 
ership and one way to encourage lead- 
ership is for students to see that it mat- 

On a different level, Honors Day 
is also designed to celebrate the uni- 
versity as a community. Wray empha- 
sizes the importance of the unity Hon- 
ors Day strives to achieve, saying "Like 
orientation, this is one of the ways that 
we make the point, 'the whole is 
greater than the sum of its parts.' That 
in spile of all the sub-cultures on cam- 
pus students can' applaud their fellow 
classmates for their achievements." 

Wray also notes that Honors Day 
encourages other students to become 
leaders. Past recipients of University 
Awards, given to four students each 
year, have succeeded in law school and 
various graduate programs and become 
prominent businesspeople.

Bike for Breath remembers Lynch, 
raises funds for asthma sufferers 

Kappa Delta keeps alive the 
spirit of a departed sister and 
contributes to a good cause 

By John and Emily Lefler 

In August of 1 990, Laury Ann Lynch 
came to High Point College as a fresh- 
man. Ever effervescent, she soon cap- 
tured the hearts of all who knew her. 
Laury could be classified as the "All- 
American Girl." 

Her charm and beauty had no limits. 
Male and female, faculty and staff were 
captured by her big brown eyes, her 
contagious smile and her zest for life. 

In the classroom she focused on be- 
coming an elementary school teacher. 
As one can imagine, children were at- 
tracted to Laury. Laury was well on her 
way to matching her talents with her 
educational opportunities, thereby pro- 
viding her with career possibilities for as 
long as she lived. 

She had parental support, a brother 
and sister who adored her and friends at 
High Point who were pleased simply to 
be in her presence. Life could not have 
been better except for her nagging prob- 
lem with asthma. Sometimes attacks 
would come upon her so violently that 
those who knew her were frightened. 
She was frightened, too, but it did not 
impede the pursuit of her dream to com- 
plete her studies and to become a teacher. 

One night, in the presence of her 
friends, when everything seemed right, 

everything went wrong. An asthma at- 
tack robbed her of her breath. Panic- 
stricken students rushed her to Forsyth 
Memorial Hospital. Over the next 24 
hours, friends and family members took 
turns saying goodbye in their own ways. 
Then she was gone. 

The Bike For Breath campaign raises 
money for the Laury Lynch Scholarship 
which assists students, like Laury, ma- 
joring in elementary education and The 
Asthma and Allergy Foundation of 

"What is Bike for Breath?" students 
ask in 1997. If you would have been here 
that awful autumn day in 1992, you 
would understand why Laury 's Kappa 
Delta Sisters insist on keeping her 
memory alive through activities like Bike 
for Breath. It was a day which every 
parent fears and every loved one dreads 
- it was a bad dream come true about one 
student who is still too special to forget. 

The Bike For Breath bike-a-thon will 
be Saturday, April 5 at noon. Riders 
should register at the starting point in 
front of the Campus Center. Registration 
begins at 10 a.m. It is a 13-mile ride. 
Riders will pedal 6.5 miles to City Lake 
Park where food and prizes will be dis- 
tributed. Prizes include a bike, helmet 
and gift certificates from various High 
Point restaurants. Then riders will pedal 
back to campus. 

Senior Tracy Tarr said, "Bike for 
breath still commemorates Laury Lynch, 
but is also dedicated to all those who 
suffer today from asthma and allergies."

Bridget Lanigan, 
head costumer for 
The Importance of 
Being Earnest and 
Oliver!, has be- 
come a valuable 
asset behind the 


Lanigans top priority: 
costuming HPU thespians 

The junior has worked hard 
to provide the Tower 
Players with accurate garb 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Bridget Lanigan, at a glance, is a 
quiet, unassuming junior with the av- 
erage course load for many students in 
her class. Bridget, however, has an- 
other occupation that engrosses quite a 
bit more of her time than any home- 
work or social activity. At the rela- 
tively young age of 20, Bridget was the 
head costumer for the Tower Players' 
production The Importance of Being 

Bridget has been involved with cos- 
tuming since her junior year in high 
school when she was asked to assist 
with the costuming for her school's 
production of Arthur Miller's Playing 
for Time. At that point, she had no idea 
how great a role costuming would play 
in her career plans. Since her arrival at 
High Point, Bridget has had a hand in 
every production helping with the cos- 

Oliver!, for Bridget, was her "trial 
by fire." With only a week to provide, 
alter and fit a cast of 45, she spent about 

sixhoursaday in the costume shop and 
countless hours outside the shop wor- 
rying about what to repair next. She 
succeeded and earned the respect of 
not only the actors but director Ron 
Law as well. 

"The thought of being in charge of 
costumes for Earnest intimidated me," 
Bridget said. "Because, even though 
I've been doing costumes since the 
eleventh grade, I still felt that I didn't 
have the knowledge todo it. Especially 
with this show because it was so cos- 
tume and style oriented." 

Research into the styles of the 19th 
century played an important part in 
preparing for the task of costuming the 
cast. Bridget' s ideas of what each char- 
acter should look like also had to be 
cleared with the director. Then, the 
costumes had to be found. Because the 
theater department lacks the facilities 
for making costumes, Bridget recruited 
a couple of friends to go to Wake 
Forest University to find them. With 
most of the cast fitted, she began work- 
ing on refining the outfits to suit per- 
sonalities and "to fit their height." 

Up until the houselights dimmed at 
the opening of the first performance, 
Bridget continued making adjustments 
and alterations. 

Fowkes has taken many directions, 
including the path to authorship 

By Kristen Long 
News Editor 

Students may be intrigued by the 
touch of black Dr. Katherine Fowkes 
always wears, but there's nothing puz- 
zling about her accomplishments. 

"It will remain a semiotic mystery," 
Fowkes says about her preference for 
black. Semiotics involves the study of 

Her students don't have to be sign- 
readers to see how hard the assistant 
professor of media studies works. 
Fowkes teaches eight different courses a 
year, ranging from video production to 
advanced film theory. 

Now she can add author to her list of 
credits. Fowkes' book Giving Up the 
Ghost, a study of ghosts and angels in 
comedy films, is forthcoming. The 
Wayne State University Press, a distin- 
guished publisher of scholarly works on 
film, will issue Fowkes' work around 

"This is a very good occurrence in 
my life," the author says. "It carries the 
prestige of being a scholar." 

She will also be presenting her schol- 
arship to colleagues from around the 
world at the Michigan Academy of Sci- 
ences, Arts and Letters, which is meet- 
ing in Grand Rapids. This weekend, 
Fowkes will dcliverapapcron the movie 
The Truth About Cats and Dogs. 

What's her advice to students seek- 
ing similar success? "Watch the mov- 
ies," she suggests, "but also pay atten- 
tion to reading a lot and writing a lot." 

At one time, she wanted to be a play- 
wright. After majoring in French litera- 
ture at Reed College, she returned to her 
hometown, New York City, to work for 
the Actor's Equity Association. The po- 
sition brought her to Broadway, but it 
lacked long-term promise. 

"It was a great job. I talked with 
famous producers and actors and got 
free theater tickets," she recalls. 

She saw that she couldn't make a 
living writing plays. "I still like the idea," 
Fowkes says, "but I realized it was an 
unrealistic goal." 


Dr. Katherine Fowkes, assistant 
professor of media studies 

But writing figured prominently in 
her future. Her marriage to scientist 
Pranab Das took the couple to the Uni- 
versity of Texas where Fowkes gained a 
master's in screen writing and her hus- 
band pursued a doctorate in physics. 

At Austin, Fowkes enjoyed her expe- 
rience in front of the classroom as an 
assistant instructor in screen writing and 
TV production. In addition, she became 
so absorbed in the art of the film that she 
entered the Ph.D. program in critical and 
media studies. "I was lucky to be ac- 
cepted," she says. "They only let six 
people in." 

Ultimately, Drs. Fowkes and Das ar- 
rived in the Piedmont. She had been 
hired by HPU. Within a few days, he was 
offered a job at Elon. 

Beyond teaching and writing, Fowkes 
likes reading novels, walking and travel- 
ing. She and her husband take a special 
trip each year. They're going to France 
this summer. Her favorite place so far is 

"We were on a state ferry," she re- 
members," and we met a huge pod of 
humpback whales. It was amazing. This 
was the number one vacation experience 

When Fowkes reflects on her under- 
graduate days, she says, "You never know 
what you're going to do. I'm glad I 
worked hard in school because when I 
decided to do something unexpected, I 
was prepared for it." 

Cannady's proposal calls for at least two 
security officers to be on duty at all times 

SECURITY, continued from front page = 

on a proposal that we will never have less 
than two officers working at the same 
time. It is a budget consideration. Nor- 
mally, two officers work very well. One 
officer is sufficient; however, due to in- 
creased theft, we have asked for more 

Security officer Rick Valet said, "For 
years I have felt we have needed two 
officers at all times. With only one of- 
ficer on duty, calling for back-up is call- 
ing the police, and then there is their 
response time." 

Cannady's proposal will most likely 
be granted. He said, "I feel pretty good. 
We report to Bob Hayes, vice president 
of financial affairs, and whenever we 
have asked for a particular tool, he has 
gotten it." 

Cannady should know by June if he 
will be able to hire more officers. 

Unlike their counterparts at some 
schools, our safety officers carry no guns 
and are only armed with Mace, but our 
officers may carry guns in the future. 

"I am certain as crime increases that 
the university will take a good look at 

arming our officers," Cannady said. 
"Elon and Barton have done so already." 

There are mixed feelings among of- 
ficers on the gun issue. 

"Personally, as a former police of- 
ficer, I would like to carry a side arm," 
Valet said. "I have the training, and the 
ones that don't should be trained. If it 
were only the students I had to contend 
with, I would not need a side arm. Unfor- 
tunately , there are non-students who pose 
a concern." 

Officer Willard Kiser said, "Pepper 
spray is sufficient. Third shift might need 
a gun, but they should be properly trained. 
There is always a remote possibility you 
could hurt a student. You don't know 
who wants to do you bodily harm." 

In Gustavo Vieira's last Greek col- 
umn, students complained about the "at- 
titudes" of the hired police officers that 
patrol with our safety officers on week- 
ends. Security supports the actions of the 
High Point police and believes that the 
police officer who did not allow the 
student on the ambulance did nothing 

"In a crowd control situation, people 
mean to help but they often interfere," 
Cannady said. "Everything the officer 
does is to calm people, and people may 
see that as an attitude. Everybody needs 
to have fun, but the situation needs to 
cease immediately. Call it attitude if you 
want, but the officer has to prevail." 

In defense of the fraternities, Valet 
said, "The majority of the time it has not 
been the residents of the fraternity houses 
that have been a problem - it is usually a 
guest. The fraternities really try to break 
up the party (to comply with the rules)." 

Security has a great relationship with 
the High Point police. Officers can call 
the police with their walkie-talkies, and 
Cannady says the police's response time 
is excellent. Security prefers to handle 
all situations on campus, but if it can't, 

Security officer 
Willard Kiser 
sees a poten- 
tial need for 
arming third- 
shift police 

officers will call the police, especially if 
the problem is with non-students. 

Officers stress that they are here to 
protect and serve the students, staff and 
faculty. But they want people to remem- 
ber that they can't be everywhere all the 
time. They also realize the pain and 
suffering a victim can go through. 

"Any time you are a victim, you want 
someone to be right there," Cannady 
said. "Every minute seems like an eter- 
nity until someone is there to help you." 

Cannady's key word for security is 

"The security officers are preventing 
crime by their very presence," said 
Cannady. "There is no way of measuring 
what they have prevented. The idea is to 
prevent as much as possible."

KD's 5K Shamrock 
Fun-Run a success 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

The Kappa Delta sorority held its 
first 5K Shamrock Fun-Run March 15. 
The run was aimed at raising funds. SO 
percent of which went to the Hallelu- 
jah House in High Point and 20 percent 
to the National Committee to Prevent 
Child Abuse. 

The Kappa Deltas have usually held 
a fashion show as their Shamrock 
project, but this year they decided a 5K 
run would raise more funds and provide 
more sponsors. "The fashion show has 
always been one of our main fundrais- 
ers, but we figured we would have more 
support by having the 5K run," said se- 
nior Tracy Tarr. 

The Kappa Deltas figured right with 
nearly 100 runners participating in the 
race. "We were very impressed with the 
turnout, being its first year and how 
early it was," said Megan Bell, Sham- 
rock chairman. Among the many stu- 
dents, faculty and staff members run- 
ning the event, there were many local 
residents and other runners supporting 
the cause. 

Registration was at 7:45 a.m. with a 
$5 fee and the race started at 8. It was 
held at the local YMCA and began on 
Gatewood Street and led to the turning 

point on Emerywood Court. Through- 
out the course there were sisters lined 
up on sidewalks and street corners 
guiding the runners and providing wa- 
ter cups at the turning point. 

There were also High Point police 
Officers at major intersections serving 
as a safeguard for the event. Dean of 
Students Gart Evans along with other 
officers volunteered their morning for 
the protection of runners. "Having Gart 
and other police officers made it easier 
in organizing the day." said Bell. 

T-shirts were sold for $5 at the 
event to boost fur.ds. The T-shirt de- 
sign was created by a young girl who 
stayed at the Hallelujah House. When 
asked what she felt, the girl drew sev- 
eral color-coded tennis shoes, which 
signify that the girl felt stepped on. Also 
printed on the shirts were various spon- 
sors listed under the rows of shoes. 

The major sponsors were Harris- 
Teeter, Pizza Hut, Domino's, 
Schlotzky's Deli, Kroger and Food 
Lion. Also printed on the shirt was a 
theme to prevent child abuse: "Hit the 
pavement not our children." 

Runners were very positive about 
the event. "It was a meaningful expe- 
rience knowing that I helped the kids 
by hitting the pavement with my 
friends," said runner Brent Ayers. 


Zeta sisters (L to R) Melissa Goodman, Megan Hutchin, Jennifer Sisson 
and Alicia Romano celebrate the sorority's 40th anniversary. 

Alpha Gamma Delta 
TE Chapter 

The sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta 
have had a very busy month. We hope 
everyone had an exciting spring break. 

Now that we are back on stride, wc 
have been very busy planning our Rose 
Ball. The dance is planned for the first 
weekend in April. 

We would like to congratulate both 
Emmalyn Yamrick and Jessie Mcllrath 
for being inducted to the Order of 
Omega. The Order of Omega is a Na- 
tional Honors Achievement for Greeks 
and their success in academics and ex- 
tra-curricular activities. 

Some of our sisters have been par- 
ticipating in community service events 
throughout High Point. This week we 
had many sisters participate in the Eas- 
ter Egg Hunt. 

Our basketball team is doing better 
than expected. So far we have achieved 
a 7- 1 record. We would like to congratu- 
late the Zetas on their 40th anniversary.

Campus Chronicle 7 

High Point's own 

Deep Water revives a blend of blues-based music 

The sextuplet plays an 
acoustically pleasing 
mixture of tunes 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

Deep Water. If s a name many stu- 
dents on campus are familiar with, and 
it has graced the pages of the Chronicle 
many limes. Deep Water is a band com- 
prised of six easy-going guys who play 
a mixture of blues-based music and en- 
joy it. 

In high school, Chris Hendrix, Seth 
Carter and Brent Ward began playing 
together, forming the key membership 
of the band which would eventually be 
Deep Water. "We used to jam together 
a little bit. I wouldn't even call it jam; it 
was more of just like a lot of noise," 
Carter said. 

When Ward and Carter arrived at 
High Point, they lost contact with 
Hendrix, who left for Western Carolina 
University. However, they continued 
with the music as a hobby. "All we did 
was sit in our room and play guitars," 
said Carter. Enter then-senior Kevin 

With Fielder on drums, Carter on 
guitar and Ward on bass, they became 
"The Hat Band" and won the 1995 Tal- 
ent Show. When Fielder graduated, 
Carter and Ward had to find a new drum- 
mer. They called David Howell, who

had gone to the same high school and 
invited him to play with them at a jun- 
ior high dance. "It was kind of funny," 
said Carter, "We scared the kids . It was 
a great (performance)." Hendrix re- 
turned that summer and the foursome 
began playing together regularly. 

Hendrix went back to school in the 
fall of '95, but returned after a semes- 
ter and the fab four were up and run- 
ning again as "Cousin Eddie," a name 
they settled on after watching National 
Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. 

Romani, Ersalesi excel in The 
Importance of Being Earnest 

The Tower Players do it 
again with Oscar Wilde's 
dry comedy of manners 

By Brent Ayers 

Assistant Editor 

The Tower players' production of 
The Importance of Being Earnest was 
spectacular. The players chose one of the 
best, funniest comedies of manners ever 
written. The chemistry between the ac- 
tors was absolutely amazing. Each joke 
(and there are many) was effectively 
delivered with enthusiasm. Also, the sets 
and costumes were extremely authentic. 
I felt lost in the world of Oscar Wilde. 

During one humorous moment, 
Algernon Moncriefs (Tony Romani) 
aunt, Lady Bracknell (Chase Bowers) 
gives John Worthing (Brian Ersalesi), 
who is interested in her daughter, her 
social test. She asks about things like his 
smoking habits and is delighted to hear 
the he does because she believes a man 
should have an occupation. 

But the funniest moments came dur- 
ing the scenes between Moncrief and 

Some of the hilarious discussions 
Moncrief and Worthing have are about 
love and marriage. Worthing contends 
that marriage is romantic, while 
Moncrief finds nothing romantic about 
the institution. He finds the chase much 
more desirable than the catch. 

This chase can be best done through 
the practice of bunburying. Bunburying 

is the game of posing as one person in 
the city and another in the country to 
increase one's fun. Bunburying is best 
done by those seeking pure entertain- 
ment from life and not much more. Con- 
sequently, Moncrief is a master 
bunburyist. But unless one is cautious, 
one may actually find love on a 
bunburying excursion, like Moncrief and 
Worthing find. 

Everyone could enjoy the show with 
the intimate atmosphere the Empty 
Space Theatre provides. One only no- 
ticed the stifling heat immediately be- 
fore intermission. 

It is not only Romani, Ersalesi and 
Bowers who deserve praise for their 
outstanding performances. The other 
actors deserve kudos as well. Megan 
Morgan portrayed the governess Ms. 
Prism with compunction, which made 
her character all the more hilarious. Cass 
Arnold debuted her skills at HPU quite 
well; she will be an asset to the Tower 
Players in the future. The two Davids, 
Gysberts and Resch, turned in spectacu- 
lar performances as menservants. 

The huge amount of work that the 
Tower Players put into this production 
was obvious. The hours of tedium get- 
ting the props, costumes, lines and ac- 
cents exactly right could be noted by 
each audience member's reaction to each 

All aspects of the play were awe- 
some! This is the best endeavor the 
Tower Players have undertaken to date. 
If you missed this performance, you 
should regret it. 

Wellington DeSouza had played with 
the group briefly during the "Hat Band" 
years. "Wellington just happened to walk 
in (during a rehearsal) and sat down at 
the piano," said Carter. Ward 
interjected, "We were playing 'Foxy 

Lady. I never heard 'Foxy Lady' with 

the piano until he did it and he just went 
to town with it. We decided we needed 
this kid in the band," finished Carter. 
DeSouza joined ranks in the fall of '96 
on keyboards, organ and piano. 

This semester, freshman Matt 

McLendon rounded out the band, 
which had been dubbed Deep Water in 
honor of the blues roots it began tap- 
ping. With the influence of greats such 
as the Allman Brothers, Deep Water has 
provided the campus, as well as local 
clubs, with a refreshing taste of blues- 
based music 

"I'd have to say we're blues," said 
Ward. "But at the same time we all 
bring different influences in. David 
brings in a lot of hard rock influence, 
Wellington brings in progressive rock 
and myself, I bring in a lot of blues and 
even a little bit of jazz into it." Carter 
and Hendrix add their classic rock style 
to make Dccpwater a truly diverse 
music sensation. 

Each show is kind of a free-style 
performance, and Carter admitted that 
the band can perform for about three 
hours and only play two songs. 

It is this spontaneity and love of 
having a good time that makes Deep 
Water such a pleasure to listen to. "To 
me, music and being in a band is all 
about being a family and being there 
for each other. It's kind of communal. 
Die music has really bonded us and, 
hopefully, bonds us to the crowds that 
come to see us," said Carter. 

"We just take it one day at a lime 
and enjoy the music and we'll always 
have that. As long as we don't play too 
loud and go deaf." 

Deep Water performs tomorrow 
night at Flappers in Jamestown. 


Marvin's Room now more than just 
another play to read in theater class 

New movie sheds light 
on poignant drama by 
Scott McPherson 

By Lauren Petrosino 

Staff Writer 

I must admit that I cheated a little 
before I went to see Marvin If Room. 
I'd read the script about 13 times. I 
practically knew it word-for-word. 
Since this was the case, I thought there 
was nothing the movie "experience" 
could offer me that the 
play "experience" hadn't. 
I was never so wrong in 
my life. 

Many of us have read 
Marvin 's Room in our hu- 
man dimensions of theatre 
classes, but don't be fooled 
into thinking that reading 
the play is sufficient. The 
film stars Diane Keaton in 
an Academy Award-nomi- 
nated role as Bessie, a woman diag- 
nosed with leukemia; Robert DeNiro 
as her doctor; Meryl Streep as Bessie's 
estranged sister, Lee (she was nomi- 
nated for a Golden Globe for this role) 
and Leonardo DiCaprio, as Lee's 17- 
year-old pyromaniac son, Hank. The 
family is thrown back together after 
20 years of not speaking to test as pos- 
sible bone marrow donors to save 
Bessie's life. 

The actors' names are impressive 
enough to tempt audiences. Their per- 

formances will blow you away. 
Keaton, Streep and DiCaprio have the 
bond (or lack of bond) that is impera- 
tive for dysfunctional families and 
show it so well that you almost feel 
uncomfortable, like you're sitting in 
on a family fight in someone else's 
house. The moments where the fam- 
ily really starts to bond again, in the 
backyard with Hank and Bessie or in 
the kitchen between Bessie and Lee 
arc real moments, not gratuitous "fam- 
ily" shots with turkey dinners and 
hugs all around. This family could be 
any family. It is every 

It is an extremely emo- 
tional movie. Expect 
tears, even if you're a 
"macho" girl or guy that 
doesn't usually cry. If 
you've read the play, you 
know that the play is very 

The movie has many 
of those moments but is 
more of a tearjerker than anything 
else. It is a play about life and what is 
important when we are faced with los- 
ing everything. Unlike many modern 
movies, it doesn't make any state- 
ments about the way life should be but 
rather the way it is. It doesn't answer 
any questions because that is the way 
life is, full of questions. 

The search for answers is what 
makes life worth living, and it is this 
same search that makes this movie 
worth every penny of the $8 I paid.

Rewrites delves into Simon's intriguing life 

Neil Simon's memoirs provide an uplifting 
journey into the past of a theatrical master 

By Brian Ersalesi 
Staff Writer 

As he gets ready to celebrate his 70th 
birthday this year, Neil Simon can rest 
easily. His plays have delighted audi- 
ences for years, and now his life, as told 
in Rewrites, will delight his fans as well. 
This wonderfully rich memoir reads 
like a storybook. It has characters that 
the reader can relate to, and anecdotes 
that make the reader reach out, turn the 
next page and continue reading. For any 
fans of the glit/.y world of show busi- 
ness, this book is a must. It has enough 
behind the scenes action to make it a 
standard for anyone involved in the the- 
atre world. 

Neil Simon has the gift of making 
words seem funny. Anyone who has seen 
any of his plays can attest to that. There- 
fore, il was a surprise to sec how truth- 
ful and touching he could write about 
his own life. More specifically, it was 
amazing to see how much he loved his 

first wife, Joan. 

Although this autobiography does fol- 
low Simon's life and career, it reads more 
as a tribute to Joan, who died of cancer 
in 1973 and left him with two daughters 
to raise. 

From the point when the two met at 
summer camp in the 1940s, Simon knew 
that they were destined to be together. 
One of the high points of the book is his 
reminiscence of their first meeting. It is 

In fact, the highlight of the book is 
the way in which he speaks of Joan. It is 
almost as if he has chosen each word 
carefully so he could describe her in what 
he considers the best light. Any reader 
can only hope to love someone as much 
as he writes of love for Joan. 

Always able to mix the sweet with the 
bittersweet, Simon remembers his early 
days with as much relish as a starving 
man grabbing a Blimpie. Mike Nichols, 
famed director and comedian, remarked 
about the book, "Neil Simon has written 


Ready for some offbeat fun? 
Check out Jungle to Jungle 

Tim Allen and Martin Short star in this light-hearted comedy 

By Sue Gessner 
Staff Writer 

As a change of pace from my usual, 
"heavy-duty" movies, this week I chose 
something a little lighter. Jungle to 
Jungle starring Tim Allen and Martin 
Short. This hilarious duo rescues the film 
from utter stupidity and takes it to a level 
that is a lot more fun and a lot more 
meaningful than you might expect. 

The story centers around Tim Allen's 
character, Mike, a self-absorbed Wall 
Street type, who can't wait to divorce 
his wife so he can get remarried to a cute 
little lashion-chickie whose selfishness 
matches his own. To gel his divorce, 
however, he has to travel to Lippo Lippo, 
Venezuela, where his wife has been liv- 
ing for 13 years. 

When he arrives, he finds a son he 
didn't know he had, who speaks a tribal 
dialect and climbs around like a mon- 
key. Far-fetched, yes, but this unlikely 
situation unfolds into a charming story 
that is sure to keep you laughing. 

To fulfill a promise, the father takes 
Mimi, his son, from an actual jungle to 
the metropolitan jungle of New York 
City. Mimi's actions and misunderstand- 

ings are almost like Paul Hogan's in 
Crocodile Dundee II, only more primi- 
tive, and in many ways, a lot funnier. 
(It's amazing what kind of fun you can 
have with a blow gun and some tran- 
quilizer darts!) 

Short, who plays Mike's best friend 
and business partner, creates an excel- 
lent supporting character much like 
Franz from Father of the Bride (only a 
little easier to understand!) These two 
seasoned comedians play off each other 
incredibly well, balancing some touchy, 
emotional moments with some healthy 
doses of laughter. 

Overall, everyone in this film does 
a great job creating fun for the audience. 
The kids give especially commendable 
performances. In many instances, they 
actually steal the spotlight from the vet- 

Some gorgeous scenic shots of the 
rain forest and New York City, joined 
by the upbeat tribal music, add the fin- 
ishing touches that make this movie a 
worthwhile break from the real world. 
Due to its "lightness," you may want to 
catch the matinee, but you certainly 
won't feel cheated if you wait 'til after 
dark. Just sit back and enjoy!

While the touching tribute to his wife 
is the central focus of the book, the be- 
hind the scenes workings of a play are a 
major draw. Simon guides the reader 
through several of his plays, from con- 
ception to opening night, and all of the 
traumas in between. 

Also enjoyable are the stories about 

"Neil Simon has written about 
a time and a place that don 't 
exist anymore. ..Neil, while

- Mike Nichols (director) 

the famous people that we read about in 
all of the entertainment magazines. 
Simon worked with these people on a 
daily basis and is able to break them 
down to human beings rather than el- 
evating them to the usual status of the 
rich and famous. 

In Simon's life, Hal Prince is not a 
famous director and wunderkind, he is 
simply Hal. The reader is treated to the 
realities of these personalities as Simon 
knew them, not as the media hounds 
make them out to be. 

Neil Simon has turned out a wonder- 
ful book that will delight those looking 
for a love story, a theatre expose or just 
a wonderful read. 

Sexually depraved Bootie 
Call isn't worth a toot 

By Doniese Collins 

Staff Writer 

As the movie started, I found myself 
excited to finally see Bootie Call. 

After only a few minutes, I had sec- 
ond thoughts. I thought to myself, "Is this 
the movie which grossed $ 1 3 million last 

Set in New York's Chinatown, the 
story begins with two guys, Rashawn 
(Tommy Davidson) and Bunz (Jamie 
Fox) at a Chinese restaurant awaiting 
their dates Nikki (Omala Anderson) and 
Listerine (Vivica Foxx). Yup, that's right, 
I said her name was Listerine. 

Rashawn and Bunz bet each other 
that by the end of the date they'll hit the 
skins (have sex with the two girls) or, as 
they say in the movie, make a bootie call. 

But, stemming from the fact that they 
are condomless, Rashawn and Bunz have 
to run out and find some condoms in 
Chinatown. Then, after buying a pack of 
condoms for $38, they eventually have 
to return to the store because they bought 

lambskin, instead of latex condoms. By 
the end of the night, despite all their ef- 
forts, neither Rashawn nor Bunz make 
a bootie call. 

This movie turned out to be an ab- 
solute joke. Not a 'ha ha' joke, but a 
"you've got to be kidding me" joke. 
Tommy Davidson, Vivica Foxx and 
Jamie Fox, all renowned actors, give 
piss-poor performances throughout the 
movie. Although it has some funny parts, 
overall it is simply an awful movie com- 
bined with awful acting. 

Surprisingly, newcomer Omala 
Anderson gives an outstanding perfor- 
mance. I think we will be seeing more 
of her on the big screen in the near fu- 
ture. That's really the only positive thing 
I can say about the movie.

Stern displays all his assets 
in debut movie, Private Parts 

The New York City shock jock leaves no 
uncouth subject uncovered in this wild comedy 

themselves back to the time before they 
became a part of Stern's entourage. 

Mary McCormack does an outstand- 
ing job as Stern's wife, Alison. She truly 
expressed the emotions of one whose 
private life was fodder for rabid Stern 

One particularly moving scene re- 
volved around the miscarriage of the 
Sterns' first child and the attempt at hu- 
mor Stern tried to pull out of it. 

Although this scene made me recoil 
with disgust, Stem eventually redeemed 
himself and proved to be a nicer guy 
than I thought. 

Although Stern doesn't cross-dress in 
this film a la Miss America, he does re- 
vive Fartman for a couple of memorable 
scenes, baring the whitest ass I've ever 
seen this side of an albino mule. 

Private Parts is peppered with a va- 
riety of sideshow acts including the 
"first nude woman on radio" and the 
aforementioned 13-inch kielbasa as 
well as a collage of cross-dressers, na- 
ked people and just plain weirdos. All 
in all, it makes the movie 
really.. .endearing. 

Some of the most entertaining shots, 
however, are at the end of the credits. 
The audience gets to see one final 
glimpse of the nefarious Pig Vomit as 
he tromps off into the streets of New 
York City muttering a colorful string of 
obscenities about Stern. 

Suffice it to say, even if you despise 
Howard Stern, catch a matinee of Pri- 
vate Parts, sit back and become en- 
grossed, or just plain grossed out. Just 
go see the movie. You never know what 
he's going to do next. 

See you at the Oscars, Howie. 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

If I just utter the words "13-inch 
kielbasa," that pretty much sums up the 
expectations I had for the Howard Stern 
flick, Private Parts. Boy, was I wrong. 

Private Parts exemplifies Stern at his 
raunchiest but also exhibits his often 
unnoticed human side. Having never 
heard any of Stern's radio shows or read 
any of his books, I basically went to the 
movie because nothing better was on. 

Private Parts chronicles Stern's rise 
from a geeky radio host to the Howie 
we all know and love, or hate, as the case 
may be. 

Stern does an exemplary job of por- 
traying himself from the 70s to the 
present day, with the help of a really bad 
wig and a moustache. But they add to 
the charm of this siliconc-implanl laden 
romp through Stern's humble begin- 

I expected nothing more than the 
lewd, crude Stern I had heard of on tab- 
loid television. I was surprisingly moved 
by the human side and, well, charming 
persona that Stern has off the air. 

The movie gives an awesome play-by- 
play of Stern and company's long-term, 
on-air battle with the censors at both the 
D.C. station, where he rose to stardom, 
and at New York's WNBC. The most 
notable tiff, and most humorous, was the 
face-off with the WNBC program direc- 
tor, Kenny, a.k.a Pig Vomit. 

The Stern-o-rama not only stars the 
master of shock radio but his trusty side- 
kicks as well. Fred Norris, Robin Quiv- 
ers and Jackie "the Joke Man" Martling 
play themselves wonderfully, devolving 

Rosewood relives the brutality 
of racism during Depression era 

By Melanie Kellam 

Staff Writer 

Rosewood is a powerful and horrify- 
ing depiction of American history that 
will bring you to anger and disgust. 
Based on a real occurrence in Florida, 
the movie will grasp your undivided at- 

Rosewood tells the story of how a 
whole African-American town is de- 
stroyed, based on the lie of one white 
woman. Fannie Taylor, played by 
Catherine Kellner, is beaten by one of 
her many lovers. Instead of facing her 
husband and the town with the truth, she 
claims a black man attacked her. This 
one lie leads to the lynching of several 
residents of Rosewood. 

The people of Rosewood, instead of 
fleeing, decide to fight for their town. 
They are led by John Wright (Jon 
Voight), the only white man living in 
Rosewood and Mr. Mann (Ving 
Rhames). Rosewood is destroyed any- 
way, but some of the women and chil- 
dren escape to Gainesville with the help 
of Mr. Mann and John Wright. 

The newspapers reported only eight 
people being killed during the massacre. 

but residents of Rosewood who are still 
alive say that there were anywhere from 
40 to 150 residents of Rosewood slain. 

This massacre takes place in a mat- 
ter of three days. As the members of the 
audience witness the events that occur 
over these few days, they become an- 
gered and ashamed. The reality of the 
brutality that went on hits the audience 
in the face. It could not be ignored. 

Rosewood is brilliantly directed by 
the acclaimed John Singleton. He dra- 
matizes the events so the audience can 
experience the trauma, as the residents 
of Rosewood experience it. 

Rosewood is a movie for all to see. 
Even though the events occur in 1929, 
the audience can see how African- 
American people cannot forget about the 
many years of slavery, brutality and de- 
humanization their families went 

The descendants of Rosewood sued 
the state of Florida in 1993. They won 
the suit and were awarded $2 million for 
the the murders and the destruction of 
the town. The families of Ronald 
Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson 
received $25 million each for their loss. 

U2 finds religion in its 
most recent offering, POP 

By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

The recent release of U2's POP has 
caused excitement in those who say the 
band has gone too far in their embrace 
of techno culture and those that they 
say they haven't gone far enough. The 
truth is that POP embodies everything 
that has made U2 the band it is — per- 
sonal lyrics by Bono, Edge's guitar and 
the great rhythm section of Adam 
Clayton and Larry Mullen. U2 has al- 
ways been about changing and em- 
bracing new paints for its musical can- 

"Staring at the Sun" offers an en- 
ergetic, Beatles-like melody when 
Bono asks, "Will we ever live in peace/ 
'Cuz those that get to often have to 
preach," which is, perhaps, a reference 
to U2's image in the '80s of wearing 
its emotions on its sleeves. U2 still 
notices the bleakness of the world in 
lines like "Referee won't blow the 
whistle/ God is good but will He lis- 
ten," but the band does a much better 
job of hiding their earnestness behind 
a facade of glam. 

In "Please," a song that condemns 
the violence of the IRA/ English con- 
flict, Bono knowingly inquires, "So 
you never knew that the heaven you 

keep/ You stole." This song examines 
the conflict in a more musically and 
lyrically complex manner than "Sun- 
day, Bloody Sunday." The musical 
maturation of U2, especially Adam 
Clayton's bass, is greatly evident on 

"If God Will Send His Angels" is 
one of those U2 ballads that recalls the 
starkness of "With or Without You." 
The ethereal backing arrangement is 
well-placed as Bono soars with lines 
such as, "God's got his phone off the 
hook, babe/ Would he even pick up if 
he could/It's been awhile since we saw 
that child/ Hanging round this neigh- 
borhood." This song explains the 
themes of POP well-desperation and 
pleas to God for His return. 

"Do you feel loved" and "Mofo" are 
the only heavily techno songs on POP. 
and they explore love and death in as 
effective a manner as U2 ever has. Ul- 
timately, POP demonstrates that U2 
has always asked more questions than 
it answered. In "Last Night on Earth," 
"Miami," and "The Playboy Mansion," 
U2 examines and dismisses the con- 
sumer mentality that values personal 
excess over spiritual salvation. 

POP is the most straightforward 
and religious of all U2's albums. It is 
also one of the group's best. 

Solondz's Welcome to the Dollhouse praises classic anti-hero 

By Heather Sitler 

Staff Writer 

Imagine the worst day of your entire 
life. Now take that day, multiply it by 50 
and you have an average day in the life 
of Dawn Weiner, the tortured youth in 
Todd Solondz's directorial debut, Wel- 
come to the Dollhouse. Winner of the 
Grand Jury Prize at the 1996 Sundance 
Film Festival, this movie is an extra- 
ordinary treat. 

Newcomer Heather (I love that name) 
Matarazzo excels as Dawn, a suburban 
New Jersey teenager trying to make it 
through the trials and tribulations of jun- 
ior high, crushes and a spoiled little sis- 

She has spunk and attitude, which 
really don't help make her life any easier; 
however, she needs to be armed with 
these for when she is regularly faced with 
accusations of lesbianism by bitchy 
cheerleaders, threats of rape by the 

school bully and constant harassment 
from her entire family. 

In an attempt to be normal, she des- 
perately tries to get the attention of Steve, 
her brother's guitar-toting friend. Steve, 
a senior in high school who will sleep 
with anything that breathes, basically 
gives her the shaft, leaving Dawn feel- 
ing like even more of a loser, if it's at all 

In the end she gets back at her family 
by indirectly causing the kidnaping of 

her little sister. The movie contains many 
surprises and leaves you hailing Dawn, 
who remains the underdog 'til the clos- 
ing credits. 

If you think you have it bad, watch 
this movie, and 1 guarantee you will sud- 
denly feel like the most popular person 
in the world. Although this movie never 
made it to the theaters (that I am aware 
of), it still deserves your $3.88 and an 
hour-and-a-hulf of your time. It's gonna 
be a classic, I promise!

Men's basketball shocks Queens in CVAC finals 

Panthers turn around season with second-half surge 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

At the beginning of every year, a 
manager or coach says he wants to have 
a better team at playoff time than the be- 
ginning of the season. The men's bas- 
ketball team did exactly that. 

Playing better at the end of the year 
than the beginning, or even the middle 
of the season, was not that difficult. With 
33 days left in the regular season the men 
stood dead last in the CVAC. At the end 
of those 33 days, they were Carolinas- 
Virginia Athletic Conference tournament 
champions and were headed to the Di- 
vision II tournament. 

In the CVAC tourney, the fifth- 
seeded Panthers started with a hard- 
fought, emotional, 87-79, comc-from- 
behind, overtime victory against St. 
Andrews. The NCAA would love to 
have the script from that game and play 
it out on March 3 1 in the Div. I finals. 

After Brett Speight and Tracy Gross 
fouled out in regulation, Maurice Madi- 
son took over. Madison hit a three-point 
basket with less than 10 seconds left in 
regulation to send the game into over- 
time, where he continued to show the hot 
hand and helped the Panthers dominate 
in the extra period. 

The men advanced to the semifinals 
where they beat top-seeded Barton, 87- 
76, to earn a spot in the championship 
game against Queens. The Panthers had 
lost in the finals the last three years and 
five of the last six years, but they made 
sure those streaks stopped. High Point 
went on a 9-0 run to take the lead half- 
way through the second half and never 
trailed again en route to a 71-68 win. 

Speight was the game-high scorer 
with 28 pomts and Gross added 16. Not 
only did the win give Speight the elu- 
sive championship he wanted, it gave the 
team an automatic bid to the Div. II tour- 
nament played in Salem Teikyo, W. Va. 

The Panthers took momentum, a 
five-game winning streak and those late- 
game heroics into the first-round game 
against Pittsburgh-Johnston. They would 
need them all as they found themselves 
down by six points with less than a 
minute left. 

But the team again rallied behind the 
three-point shooting of Madison and was 
able to send the game into overtime 
when Gross found Chad Reeves for a 
lay-up with less than 10 seconds left. In 
the extra period, the much taller Panthers 
dominated the inside for a 94-92 victory. 
Reeves led the team with 27 points and 
17 rebounds. Speight had 24 points and 
Madison had 25, including three-of-four 
shooting from three point range. 

In the second round High Point took 
on the host team and nation's second- 
ranked squad, Salem-Teikyo. They got 
off to a slow start and were down by 25 
points 13 seconds into the second half. 
The next five-and-a-half minutes the 
Panthers used some of that late-season 
momentum as they went on a 20-0 run 
to get within five points of the Tigers. 

Reeves and Gross kept bringing the 
team back, and with 7:37 left, the men 
had come back to lead 67-66. But Sa- 
lem-Teikyo went on 15-5 run late in the 
game to win, 91-82. The season finally 
ended for a group of a feisty Panthers 
and the college careers of Speight and 
Reeves came to an end.

Speight completes his four-year career for the Panthers, 
scoring the second most points in HPU history 

By Jason Morgan 

Staff Writer 

Brett Speight's basketball career at 
High Point had a much quieter begin- 
ning than end. The school's second all- 
time leading scorer ( 1 ,877 points) started 
his playing days here in an unfamiliar 
spot - the stands. 

After leading his high school to the 
state championship, Speight arrived as 
a highly touted freshman. However, he 
was redshirted due to heart surgery. Al- 
though a season as a spectator wasn't 
what Speight had planned for his fresh- 
man year, the 6-foot-9 senior made the 
best of it. 

"I used the time off to get adjusted to 
college life and to develop my game both 
mentally and physically," he said. 

After the one-year hiatus from the 
court, he quickly established himself as 
a mainstay in the Panther program for 
the years to come. As Speight's contri- 
butions on the court increased, so did the 
individual accolades, starting with an 
NAIA Academic All- America selection 
in his sophomore season. 

High Point then left the NAIA and 
joined the NCAA at the Division II level. 
The Panthers' first season in the CVAC 
saw Speight earn Conference Player of 
the Year honors as well as honorable 
mention All-America. This season 
Speight fell just short of Player of the 
Year honors but still earned first team 

More importantly, he achieved the 
one thing that had eluded him his entire 
career, a conference championship. 

Brett Speight finished his career 
No. 2 on the HPU scoring list 

"The personal honors are great, and 
I'm extremely proud of them, but noth- 
ing means more to me than that net hang- 
ing over my door," said Speight. "That 
was my main goal coming into the sea- 
son and to accomplish it is the best feel- 
ing I've ever had in my career." 

Speight, who faces a new challenge 

upon graduation in May - the real world 
- hopes he can find as much success 
there as he has on the hardwood. After a 
week or two of relaxation, he plans to 
take a shot at professional basketball 
somewhere overseas. 

"I'm going to take some time off to 
catch up on some school work and re- 
lax. Then I'm going to see what's out 
there. A number of the coaches in the 
conference as well as the coaching staff 
here are all being very helpful, and there 
seems to be some interest in Australia 
and Europe," said Speight. 

If basketball doesn't work out, 
Speight will turn to his field of study for 
a job. Brett, who is student-teaching at 
Northwest Guilford High School, says 
he'll look for a teaching job where he 
can also coach basketball. 

No matter where Speight's future lies, 
he plans to approach it the same way he 
does basketball - playing hard. 

Injuries, lack 
of depth hurt 
track team 

Coach Bob Davidson looks 
to improve on last year's 
third-place finish at the 
Carolinas Collegiate Meet 
April 19 

From Staff Reports 

The men's track team is geared up 
for a successful season with promising 
recruits and a mix of veterans. Though 
injuries have plagued the team, Coach 
Bob Davidson along with team members 
is very optimistic about the year ahead. 

Though the team lacks depth, it's 
grateful for the variety of events that 
members participate in. "We don't have 
great numbers which kind of puts a dent 
on our team when injuries occur," said 

With new recruits as sprinters, 
Davidson hopes the team will attain 
many points from these versatile ath- 
letes. The 4x100 relay consists of Jobe 
Beckhom, Kenji Dorsey, Matt Norman 
and Larikus Scott. "These four sprinters 
will provide a more balanced team," said 

Two injured members are Christian 
(Cell, who provides strength at the 
steeplechase, and Tony Pompa, who is 
an experienced sprinter. Both suffered 
hamstring pulls, but Davidson believes 
they are not season-ending injuries. 

Chad Baucom is back to lead in the 
weight events. "Chad is a real force for 
us because he provides a solid base on 
all four weight events," said Davidson. 
Baucom will compete in the shot put, 
discus, javelin and hammer throw. "Last 
year Chad was a stand-out at our cham- 
pionship meet," said Davidson. 

The team is anticipating the 4th an- 
nual Carolinas Collegiate Meet on April 
19. The Panthers hope to improve from 
last year's third place finish. "We have 
plenty of time to prepare for the meet," 
said Davidson.

Curits shines in CVAC finals with 36 points and 14 boards 

By Ben Eckman 

Staff Writer 

The women's basketball team had a 
remarkable season even though the cam- 
paign ended with a painful tournament 

The Panthers fell three points short 
of the Elite Eight, losing to Edinsboro 
College, 70-68, in the NCAA-Div. II 
East championship game at Shippens- 
burg. Pa. 

"After the sting of losing goes away," 
coach Joe Ellenburg said, "I look back 
at an incredible season. We finished with 
a 26-6 record. We earned the respect of 
the region. We won the conference (tour- 
nament) for the third straight time, and 
we beat Longwood convincingly twice." 

High Point reached the regional 
championship game via a 20-point tri- 
umph over No. 1-seed Shippensburg. 
The win featured strong performances 
by Karen Curtis, Dee Pennix and Jan 
Foushee. In the first round, the Panthers 
whipped Longwood, 80-64, with Curtis 
and Pennix scoring 26 points apiece and 
Curtis recording a triple double. 

That win was "deja vu all over 
again," as Yogi Berra once said. High 
Point had just beaten Longwood in the 
championship game of the Carolinas- 
Virginia Athletic Conference (CVAC) 
tournament. Taking the title against 
Longwood was especially sweet because 
the Panthers had lost three straight games 

to the Virginians. 

The championship game pitted 
CVAC player of the year Nikki Hall of 
Longwood against All-America candi- 
date Karen Curtis. When the smoke 
cleared, Curtis left the court with 36 
points, 14 rebounds and the tournament's 
Most Valuable Player award. Hall had 
seven points, five from the free throw 

Another glittering CVAC tourney 
moment came when the Panthers beat 
Belmont Abbey in the semifinals at the 
buzzer for the third consecutive year. 
With five seconds remaining, Pennix 
took the ball upcourt and hit a game-win- 
ning three. Last year, Curtis' eight-footer 
did the honors. Two years ago, Tiffanie 
Wilson's trey started the tradition. 

On the season, Curtis posted spar- 
kling stats— 25. 1 PPG on 50.7 percent 
shooting from the field and 8. 1 RPG. Her 
165 assists and 117 steals attest to her 
all-around prowess. 

This year's prizes come at a cost. The 
team will lose two key seniors. Tiffanie 
Wilson helped bring the university five 
championships, three in hoops and two 
in volleyball. Erin Weatherstone, a juco 
transfer last year, made an incredible 
adjustment from an offensive star to de- 
fensive stopper. 

Starters Curtis, Pennix and Foushee 
and freshman leaders Keisha Boyd and 
Annie Miller will be returning. Next year 
the Panthers could be in the Elite Eight.

The baseball team was nearing the .500 mark before slipping to 8-12. 

Optimistic outlook helps Panthers 
during roller-coaster baseball season 

From Staff Reports 

At mid-season, the baseball team has 
had no easy going. It has been what some 
may call a roller-coaster ride — up and 
down. But team hopes for a successful 
season are still alive. 

The team will have to step up a notch 
with senior catcher and team leader 
Brandon Rush out for the season with a 
broken arm. Rush broke his arm chas- 
ing a foul ball; he slipped and fell into 
the dugout. "With the loss of our team 
leader, Sam Dover has to step it up along 
with all of us," sajd sophomore Dan 

The team is very confident in hav- 
ing Dover being the new catcher."It's up 
to us, we just have to put it all together 
and do what we have to do," said Roof. 

The team was nearing the .500 mark 
but they had three disapointing losses to 
Longwood. It now stands 8-12. 

"We have a good team. A lot of play- 
ers are coming off the bench and play- 
ing many positions," said sophomore 

pitcher Jeremy Dowd. Jeremy holds a 
very optimistic point of view about the 
team's future. "If we start batting con- 
sistently we'll be all right," said Dowd. 
The baseball team is very young, 
which shows why coaches are trying dif- 
ferent players in several positions. "We 
have the talent; it's just the matter of the 
pieces falling into place," said Roof. 

Roof, along with other players, be- 
lieves the team needs to get a few wins 
together to get their momentum going. 
"We have to be more consistent day in 
and day out; that's the bottom line," said 

Players know what is needed from 
them to siring out a few wins — consis- 
tency in batting and pitching. 

With a hefty schedule for the remain- 
der of the season, players arc hesitant in 
predicting the future. "Because we're in 
mid-season, it's difficult to say where 
we're going because we have no time to 
really think about where we are," said 

Coach splits time with soccer, cheerleading

In her three years at HPU, 
Heather Puckett has found the 
women she works with make 
her hectic schedule worth- 

Although she finds her 
positions as women's soccer 
coach, cheerleading squad 
adviser and assistant area coordinator for 
Millis Hall tiring at times, she feels that 
the women help to give her support. 

"They help a lot. They understand 
which hat I'm wearing," she said. 
Puckett has found that if she is down at 
one thing, there is always someone to 
bring her up.

Tennis teams in top echelon of CVAC 

Men down powerhouse Eton for 9-1 record; women improve to 8-3 

By John Idol 
Staff Writer 


The men's lennis team has been 
virtually untouchable this year, win- 
ning Us first nine matches before los- 
ing 6-3 to Barton. 

The Panthers are 9- 1 . 2- 1 in the 
CVAC They recently defeated Coker 
9-0. Elon 5-4, Queens 9-0, Gardner 
Webb 6-3 and Guilford 9-0. 

Coach Jerry Tert/.agian says, "I 
feel that after we play Lees-McRae, 
St. Andrews, Barton and Pfeiffer, I 
will know how good this team really 
IS. Those guys will be our main rivals." 

Top seed Taavi Suorsa has only 
lost once this year, while his fellow 
linlanders Pekka Pohjamo and Kalle 


Kuusisto have gone undefeated so far 
this season. 

Coach Tert/.agian praised all his 
players. "Even though tennis is an in- 
dividual sport, it is still a team effort. 
Hvery match played counts for some- 

The team's next home matches 
are today against Wingate and Mon- 
day against Belmont Abbey. 

The women' s lennis team con- 
tinues to rock and roll this year. De- 
spite having lew returning players and 
six freshmen, this team is playing 
great tennis. They have eight wins and 
only three losses. They arc (l-l) in 
the CVAC. They have defeated 
Guilford 5-4, Gardner Webb 5-4, 
Queens 6-3 and Catawba 6-3. They 

lost to Coker 6-3 last week in a tough 

Coach Jerry Tert/agian said," We 
lost to Coker in a very close match. 
Playing hard is the key to our victo- 
ries. We are trying to improve and 
have fun at the same time." 

Freshman Andrea Avello has lost 
two tough matches but still has the 
potential to lead this team to more vic- 
tories. Fellow freshman Sylvia Paugh 
is undefeated so far this year 

Tert/.agian does not believe in 
playing favorites, though. He thinks 
every team member has a vital role 
to play. 

The Lady Panthers play a home 
match tomorrow against Longwood 
at 2:30. They play Saturday, March 
22 at Erskine College.

Moore leads golf 
team to No. 18 
national ranking 

From staff reports 

Sophomore Tom Moore is making a name for 
himself at High Point. 

In his first year at HPU, the Ontario native 
has recorded a 72.6 scoring average through six 
tournaments, helping the golf team achieve a No. 
1 8 national ranking in Div. II. 

Moore leads a strong contingent of five start- 
ers who post scoring averages under 77. Don 
Wilson (74.4), Tony Romani (74.9), Pete 
Santacasa (76.3) and Adam Prangcr (77) have 
competed in four fall tournaments and three this 

Wilson won the Max Ward Invitational March 
I0-I I. firing rounds of 70 and 72 on the par-7l 
course. High Point took team honors as well. Sun- 
day, Wilson finished second in the Cheerwine In- 
vitational at Lockwood Folley Golf Club in 
Holden Beach. 

"We've got a good team," Romani said. "It's 
the best team since I've been here." 

Moore, who tied for fifth at the Max Ward 
with rounds of 72 and 75, was disqualified for an 
illegal drop on the first hole at the Cheerwine In- 
vitational. He said the team had a tough outing in 
Holden Beach but is relocusing for its next match, 
.March 29-30 at Pine Needles Golf Club. 

"We've been playing a little inconsistent, but 
we're heading in the right direction," Moore said. 
"We've got a couple weeks off. so everybody's 
sharpening and trying to fine-tune his game."

Car theft shocks campus 

Senior Jay Horay had his 
car stolen at gunpoint in 
the Lambda Chi parking lot 

By Gustavo Vieira 
and Megan Morgan 

Greek and A&E Editors 

Safety is often taken for granted on 
a medium-sized campus, but a recent 
armed car theft has caused students and 
the administration to take action. 

Now, students have become con- 
cerned about their safety. Security, stu- 
dents and administrators arc imple- 

menting precautionary measures to pre- 
vent other life-threatening occurrences. 

Junior Jason Horay pulled up in the 
parking lot between the Theta Chi and 
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity houses at 
9:15 p.m. on March 30. As he stepped 
out of his car, a black male with a shot- 
gun forced him to the ground. 

The man took Horay's wallet and 
the keys to his car. Demanding to know 
which key fit the car, the man kept the 
gun pointed at Horay until the thief 
pulled out of the parking lot.

Goodbye, High Point, one final column before graduation 

Well, this is It. With graduation 
just two weeks away, we 
seniors are so occupied with 
term papers, final exams and dealing with 
life alter crossing that stage, diploma in 
hand, we barely have time to ponder the 
last lour years. 

I can't speak tor every senior, but I've 
attended High Point since my freshman 
year in the fall of "93. So many things have 
changed, especially with this newspaper. 
And since I am about to forever relinquish 
the position of editor, I want to pause for a 
moment and, for the first time, share my 
experience as part of the Campus

first-year adviser to a campus newspaper 
formerly known as the Hi-Po. 

The paper didn't have a name then - the 
first four issues had big question marks 
before students finally approved Campus 
Chronicle in January. Honestly, this rag 

wasn't much to look at, and I really didn't 
care. Establishing a career at The High 
Point Enterprise was much more 
important at the time. 

I wrote an occasional piece for our no- 
name paper but had nothing to do with 
layout, editing or the production end ol 
things. Clint Barkdoll. a sharp-witted 
junior with ■ genius for politics, was the 
editor then. Clint was a cunning business- 
man and the most likeable guy I've ever 
met. Unfortunately, he was a rookie at 
putting together a newspaper. 

Sometime in December, after one ol 
my stories appeared in I very jumbled, 
disorganized issue of the '.''.''.'?'.', I made a 
resolution: If my name is going to he 
associated with tins newspaper, then it's 
going to look somewhat respeclahle. 

In January, Gaspeny promoted me to 
sports editor, and I began orchestrating the 

Chronicle's conversion to more modern 
design programs. Back then, we had one 
outdated computer with no software and an 
office the si/e ol a prison cell. Despite OUT 
lack of equipment and cramped quarters, 
the rejuvenated Chronicle stall made a

began cranking out quality issues

production difficulties at our printer. The

Intramurals were sub-par this year 

By Jason Morgan 

Staff Writer 

During the pasl year, High Point 
University has made great strides toward 
its constant goal of improving not only 
the campus, hut also the quality of edu- 
cation. However, through all the posi- 
tive changes, a negative sticks in my 
mind as I approach graduation. 

This year, an important aspect of this 
university has hecn forgotten. The Intra- 
mural program fell apart while the uni- 
versity as a whole hegan to build up. 

Ultimate Frisbec, perhaps the most 
cherished of all intramural sports, was 
for all intents and purposes a joke. Al- 
though there was the traditional competi- 
tiveness, some teams found themselves 
only playing three or four games whereas 
in the pasl we have normally played 12 

Then, if the season weren't bad 
enough, the tournament had to be re- 
scheduled a couple times due to im- 
proper seeding. Frisbee was only a pre- 
lude to what was next. It took so long to 
finish the frisbec season that soccer sea- 
son lasted about three games, and if I'm 


not mistaken, a champion never was de- 

Basketball season was a whole dif- 
ferent story. Yes, the schedule of games 
did improve, thanks to the tireless efforts 
of Reagan Chapman. But the problems 
went a little deeper than that. During 
mid-season a decision was made by the 
individuals in charge of intramurals to 
rule that red-shirted basketball players 
were ineligible to compete even though 
in the past that has never come into ques- 

I have been here four years and seen 
red-shirts participate in every single in- 
tramural sport without question. Now 
suddenly a decision was made in mid- 
season on this issue. A clear-cut reason 
was never given to the players. The re- 
sulting decision benefitted a team asso- 
ciated with persons making this decision. 

Softball seems to be on track, and I 
hope it goes well. But as I leave this uni- 
versity, I urge Student Life to take a long 
look at the intramural program. My ad- 
vice is to make sure that all decisions 
are unbiased and for the betterment of 
the intramural program, benefitting all 
High Point students, not just one team. 

Underage gambling just doesn't pay 

In a few weeks, we all will he start- 
ing out on our summer vacations. For 
those of us who live near resort areas, 
part of our vacation may be spent in or 
near casinos. Casinos are exciting places, 
full of entertainment and the promise of 
easy cash. However, these enticements 
are designed for adults, and when young 
people under the age of 2 1 try to engage 
in underage gambling, problems arise. 

As much as we may not like to deal 

with what we consider to be "unreason- 
able" rules set for us by authorities, those 
of us who choose to break the law make 
a huge mistake. There are some activi- 
ties that carry too much responsibility for 

Underage gambling just isn't smart. 
Go play on the beach instead, and have 
a good summer.

editor, but fearing it would interfere with 
my work at The Enterprise, I opted for 
assistant editor instead. Wanting to focus 
on academics, Barkdoll moved to editorial 
page editor (his real strength), and A&E 
guru Steve Steffek rose to the editor-in- 
chief ranks. 

Working with Steffek and Barkdoll was 
one of my greatest experiences with the 
Chronicle. Those guys could crank out 
copy into the wee hours of the morning 
while always keeping a grin on their 
sarcastic faces (usually by impersonating 
Gaspeny and other important school 
figures). We worked so damn hard. I didn't 
realize it then, but those truly were the 
glory years. 

Steffek was a pop-culture genius who 
worshipped John Travolta and Peter Fonda 
and usually wrote five or six movie reviews 
per issue. That year, his lengthy contribu- 
tions helped us put out the highest number 
of pages ( 1 1 6) in the Chronicle's four-year 

During the Steffekian era, I concen- 
trated primarily on sports and layout, 
Steffek handled A&E and Barkdoll took 
care of news and op/ed before graduating 
in December. Megan Keenan was in her 
second year as Greek editor, and Andy 
Belk (my roommate and a great friend) 
supplied most of our photography. We 
enjoyed a solid staff. 

In the spring, we began seeing some of 
the first fruits of repeated attempts to 
upgrade our production capabilities when 
the school approved $7000 of new 
equipment. An increase in ad sales and 
highly efficient business dealings allowed 
us to establish a precedent for partial 
scholarships to page editors. After months 
of frustration, things were finally shaping 
up behind the scenes. 

'95-'96 - New Editor, Sew Look 

My junior year, and 1 had so many 
ambitions. Steffek was spending his final 
semester in England, so the paper officially 
became mine. Nothing had changed really, 
except my title and the fact I only had to 
answer to one person - the Almighty G. 

Gaspeny and 1 talked over the summer 
about what we wanted the paper to be, then 
decided on a look similar to the pages 
you're reading now. In my eyes, what 
makes the G-Man such a great adviser is 
his unique ability to relate to students; plus 
he gives the staff a lot of autonomy. The 
Chronicle always has been a newspaper for 

the students and by the students, and 
Gaspeny does a fine job making sure it 
stays that way. 

We entered August with lots of 
questions and a lot of positions to fill. The 
editorial staff worked extra hard because 
we had no sports editor, but a freshman 
named Brent Ayers soon came to the 

In the annual orientation issue, I wrote 
a humorous "get-to-know-High Point" 
piece called "Hangin' off campus with the 
Hump-dawg." If you're a sophomore, who 
knows, that might be one of your first 
memories at HPU. 

In September, The Chronicle moved 
into its present (much larger) residence, the 
former Student Union office in Rm. 210 of 
the Campus Center. About that time, we 
installed the new equipment guaranteed the 
previous school year. That, coupled with 
Ayers' strong work ethic, created a 
smoother production process. 

Nineteen ninety-six came bearing good 
news. The American Scholastic Press 
Association, for the second straight year, 
gave The Chronicle a first-place ranking 
among schools with an enrollment over 
2500. The Chronicle's Nov. 30, 1995 front 
page also received a first-place award from 

'96- '97 - The End of an Era 

I'd be lying if I didn't admit this has 
been one of the most stressful school years 
in my life. Don't get me wrong — I've had a 
blast. But, like high school all over again, 
senioritis set in early and never left. 

Four years at college takes a toll, and 
like so many other seniors, I'm ready to 
leave. But before I do, let me give credit 
where it is due. 

During the first semester, Belk got us 
off on the right foot by selling over $3000 
in ads, Ayers returned as my right-hand 
man and a number of former staff writers 
filled crucial editorial positions. News 
editor Kristen Long has done an outstand- 
ing job, Megan Morgan's artistic and 
literary talents give us a well-rounded A&E 
section, and our always-energetic Greek 
editor, Gustavo Vieira, has a real heart for 
the newspaper business. 

To the student body, I say thanks for 
letting me represent you as the Campus 
Chronicle editor for the last two years. It's 
been an adventure. I'll be sad to leave, but 
inevitably, we must pass the flame. 

Mr. Ayers, make us proud. . .

SGA Election '97: Foster, Carter vie for president 

BCA president finds time for 
serving others despite her 
lengthy responsibilities 

Mikel Foster began her years at High

degree, but little did she know what 
would be in store for her. 

As all freshman do, this rising senior 
from Miami adjusted to college life so-

^*^ ' tr * member with the 
Black Cultural Awareness club, which 
then only consisted of fewer than 10 

By the end of that year, she was 
elected vice president of the organiza- 
tion. Because of some unforeseen cir- 
cumstances, she had to fill in the posi- 
tion of president and quickly adjust. She 
has continued through her junior year to 
lead this successful organization whose 
membership has grown to over 40. 

Amid all of the responsibility of be- 
ing a sports medicine major and presi- 
dent of a club, Mikel still finds time to 
be a student justice, a coordinator for the 
very successful Lunch Buddy program 
and a high school athletic trainer, among 
other things. 

She has organized campus-wide 
clothing drives and fund-raising for the

Long list of accomplishments 
gives Carter a distinguished 
history of serving students 

Seth Carter is the most qualified stu- 
dent for SGA President. He has more 
than proven himself through a variety of 
campus activities. 

Beginning his freshman year, he be- 
came active in the campus community. 
C And last year Seth 

Setfl began his SGA ca- 

PADTFR reer as Amission 
^**'* I L-l\ representative. He 

alerted SGA's Executive Council to 
things that needed change. Then, second 
semester of last year, he assumed the 
appointed position of social vice presi- 

Through this position he worked 
closely with the offices of student activi- 
ties and student life. He built a useful 
rapport with many administrators, includ- 
ing Dean Gart Evans and (Catherine Hill. 
By the end of his term as social VP, the 
students elected him executive VP. 

And he has not made the students re- 
gret their votes. He has been one of the 
most active executive VPs since SGA's 
1 993 reformation. Seth not only does the 
traditional duties of coordinating student 
orientation and homecoming, he chairs 
the newly formed Disabilities Assess- 
ment and Handbook Committees. 

Due to his efforts with the DAC, a

SGA executive vice president 

top priority has been to put an elevator 
and handicapped accessible restrooms in 
Hayworth Hall. This is the type of 
change Seth produces. He sees a prob- 
lem and deals with it so the solutions 
are equitable to all parties. 

The newly approved Residential Life 
Court is one of Seth's ideas which will 
be most beneficial to students. Through 
this court system, students may appeal 
fines given by ACs. 

Another thing that weighs on Seth's 
mind is renewing the unity that used to 
be on this campus. "My freshman year," 
Seth said, "this place seemed so close- 
knit, but now that sense of campus com- 
munity seems to be gone, and I want to 
change that."

Campus housing for women needs vast improvement 

The school's current practices border on sexism 

By Lauren Petrosino 

Staff Writer 

Have you ever thought about the way 
we live on campus? I mean, really thought 
about it? Yeah, we get to choose where 
we live, sort of. I would rather be living 
on the bottom floor of my dorm or any 
dorm for that matter. 

But as a woman living on campus, I 
am severely limited in my choices. No 
one really thinks about it, but don't our 
living arrangements seem sexist? 

Listen up. 

Women are not allowed to live on the 
bottom floor of any dorm not specifi- 
cally designated for female housing. 

None of the dorms that house any 
women has an elevator. The only dorm 
with one is Finch. 

The upperclass-men have the option 
of living in two-room suites, an choice 
that is not open to women. 

McEwen and Wesley are the only 
two dorms especially for women. In the 
rooms the walls are peeling and the ceil- 
ing tiles are rotting. Both floors of Wesley 
and third floor McEwen have hall bath- 
rooms. No freshman man has a hall bath- 
room. Why not? 

I have heard that the reason men are 
housed on the bottom floors is for secu- 
rity reasons. If that were the case, why 
not house men on the bottom floor of 
McEwen as well? 

Why are women allowed to live in the 
Annex? It cannot be because they are 
safer in these dorms. The Annex doesn't 
even have an RA. If the school were 
concerned for the safety of its female 

residents, it would have more protection 
in this living area. 

Finch has the elevator. I understand 
that property wi 1 1 be destroyed any where 
- the men have proven themselves to be 
less than capable of respecting this prop- 
erty. I do realize that not all of the resi- 
dents in Finch pee in the elevator and rip 
the ceiling out of it, but McEwen, Wesley 
and the second and third floors of North/ 
Yadkin have not had such a gross disre- 
spect for property during the past three 
years while I have lived in the Complex. 

I realize that space is limited. I'm not 
obli vious to the fact that men were tripled 
in Finch during freshmen orientation, 
but the Complex has the same problem. 
People are stuffed into corners in 
McEwen and closets in North/Yadkin. 

The fact is that men have more op- 
tions concerning where they want to 
live, and these options are more appeal- 

ing. I know of a lot of women who would 
love to live in the Sixth Street house, but 
we don't have that option. 

Women make up 60 percent of our 
campus. Why should the men have more 
options? Because that is the way it's 
happened from the beginning of the 
school? I don't think so. 

So what are the solutions? There are 
none the administration is willing to en- 
tertain. Maybe Finch could be made co- 
ed on the first floor (it has a women's 
bathroom). But an understanding about 
this situation will only be reached when 
the administration realizes we are more 
mature than it believes. 

I am not a "femi-Nazi." I believe in 
equal rights for everyone. I just believe 
that women are treated unfairly in this 
situation and will continue believing this 
until I am given reason to believe other- 

Discover your preferred learning style to help with exams 

Some learn best by doing; others prefer seeing and hearing 

By Katrina Breitenbach 
Staff Writer 

As final exams approach, you ' re prob- 
ably worried about either getting your 
grades up or keeping them where they 
are. Here are some suggestions. 

1 . Find your preferred style of learn- 
ing. There are three styles of learning: 
seeing, hearing and doing. You learn 
best when you do all three, but you will 
find by experimenting that one certain 
order of using these styles works best for 
you, and your brain prefers one of them 
in particular. 

For example, my brain prefers learn- 
ing visually, so I learn best in this order: 
seeing, hearing and doing. My best friend 

John, on the other hand, learns best by 
doing and prefers a different order of 
styles: doing, hearing and seeing. 

This created a problem when I asked 
him to teach me how to ride a mountain 
bike on trails. He began with his way — 
doing. And we both ended up frustrated. 

Then I realized I needed him to teach 
me in the order that I learned best. If he 
showed me how to do something (see- 
ing), explained it to me (hearing) and 
then watched me try it (doing), I picked 
up the idea much faster. I also reinforced 
the visual (how I learn best) by reading 
books on mountain biking. Now, eight 
months later, I'm riding with confidence! 

2. Use your preferred style and order 
of learning styles in your study habits, 

especially preparing for tests. 

If you learn best through seeing, read 
over the text and your notes several times. 
But don't try to memorize everything. 
Highlight the information that you be- 
lieve is most important and focus on that. 
If you overload your brain, you may end 
up not remembering anything. 

If you learn best through hearing, 
read your notes aloud or get someone to 
read them to you. Have that person ask 
you questions and answer them aloud. If 
you get a question wrong, listen to the 
right answer. 

If you learn best through doing, copy 
by hand or into a computer the informa- 
tion you believe is most important for the 
test. Draw diagrams over and over. Try 
teaching the ideas to someone else. 

3. Use mnemonic devices — little 

tricks to help you recall information. For 
example, when I took Human Relations 
201, 1 noticed if you put the six commu- 
nication filters — semantics, emotions, 
role expectations, gender bias, attitudes 
and nonverbal messages — in the right 
order (as shown), they spelled out most 
of the word "sergeant": S-E-R-G-A-N. 
So I used that as a mnemonic device to 
emphasize the list for a test, and it worked. 

4. Train your brain to retain informa- 
tion. It's been said that we only use about 
I Ope rcent of our mind's potential. Don't 
settle for 10 percent! If you work at it, 
you can actually teach your brain to 
remember more information for longer 
periods of time. Try using the tips above 
and experimenting to find any other 
methods that work for you. 

Hey, what do you have to lose?

Revised student handbook updates 
guidelines for campus organizations 

Dr. Morns Wray, VP of internal affairs, helped orchestrate the transition 

By John Kinney 
Staff Writer 

Student organizations not granted 
a charter this semester, like the Gen- 
esis Gospel Choir and Friends, will be 
able to reapply for a charter next se- 
mester, according to Dr. Morris Wray, 
vice president of internal affairs. 

During the second half of this se- 
mester, President Jacob C. Martinson 
did not allow any student organizations 
to apply for a charter, claiming the club 
guidelines needed to be improved. The 
student organization guidelines have 
been revised and will be included in 
the also-revised student handbook. 

Wray provided leadership for the 
revision of the student handbook and 
received help from other administra- 
tors and the Student Government As- 
sociation. The university began revis- 
ing the student handbook in 1994 in 
hopes of printing the many unpub- 
lished policies and regulations in one 

"This has been a very difficult task, 
and we would have gotten the hand- 
book out earlier, but there would have 
been a lot of unresolved issues," Wray 

The most prominent feature of the 
new student organization guidelines is 
the addition of listed organizations. 
Currently, no listed organizations ex- 
ist, but next semester, with the ap- 
proval of Dean of Students Gart Evans, 
clubs without charters can become 
listed organizations. The particular 
type of club that Wray believed would 
fit into the listed category includes 
honor societies and professional orga- 

"We. ..knew we had organizations 
that were operating without charters," 
Wray said. "That was the reason we 
created this second (listed) category. 
We want to provide some type of de- 
scriptions of rights for non-chartered 
organizations. Our student handbook 
needs to acknowledge such groups." 

The difference between chartered 
and listed organizations will be an au- 
thoritative one. Listed organizations 
will not be able join or have a vote in 
either the Legislative Board or Com- 
munity Affairs Board of the Student 
Government Association, and they will 

only be able to request funding after 
chartered organizations do so. How- 
ever, listed organizations will be cited 
in the organization directory. 

But the new guidelines do not state, 
as the old guidelines did, that "All or- 
ganizations must bear some relation- 
ship to the purpose or mission state- 
ment of the university." Friends was 
denied a charter because the adminis- 
tration felt that the group was in con- 
flict with the mission statement. 

Could Friends be granted a charter 
since new guidelines do not state that 
clubs must adhere to the mission state- 
ment? Wray said, "Everything we do 
is an extension of the university, and 
that includes the mission statement." 

Asked if Friends could become a 
listed organization, Wray said, "Maybe 
the answer is that there should be three 
categories: chartered, listed and sup- 
port groups." 

The university believes there needs 
to be a gray area when deciding 
whether clubs will be considered as 
chartered or listed. 

"I don't know how you would draw 
a line between Friends in Christ and 
Friends," Wray said. "Both groups are 
similar [neither has a charter and both 
meet on campus]. The handbook was 
essentially complete before the Friends 
situation. It may be before we finalize 
this document that there may be some 
interpretation of that issue." 

Ultimately, the purpose of revising 
the student organization guidelines was 
to make it clear that all student groups 
have certain responsibilities. 

Wray said, "Regardless of the la- 
bels we give student organizations, 
there need to be some guidelines for 
every group that meets on campus." 

Though the regulations in the re- 
vised student handbook, such as the 
student organization guidelines, have 
been approved, the university ac- 
knowledges that all policies need to be 
open to change. 

"This will be the best document the 
university ever had, but it will not be 
fine-tuned until it is put to use," Wray 

The new student handbook will be 
available next semester to incoming 
freshman and to returning students 
upon demand.

As outside crime creeps onto campus, new solutions must be found 


By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

High Point, like all cities, has 
always been vulnerable to violence, 
theft and assault - and now these 
crimes are creeping into our micro- 
cosm, and 
students are 
feeling the fear 
and anger associated with this vio- 

Our first reaction is to find blame - 
High Point city police, campus 
security. Student Life - but the real 
issue should not concern blame; it 
should focus on a solution. 

Campus safety uses words like 
proactive and preventive to describe its 
method for protecting students. Based 

on this year's events, however, it 
seems security can only prevent after 
it has reacted. A crime must occur 
before security is able to prevent it 
from happening again. Rounds on golf 
carts and a dorm-patrolling security 
guard prevent crime to a certain point, 
but this year has proven these methods 
simply are not enough to prevent 

The Theta Chi house was broken 
into three times before additional 
lights were installed around the 
perimeter and shrubs were cut back to 
eliminate hiding spots. It was only 
after reacting to this recurring problem 
that any more break-ins were pre- 

Jason Horay was held at gunpoint 
in the parking lot adjacent to the Theta 

Chi and Lambda Chi houses three 
months later. Security had been alerted 
to a suspicious man on campus and it 
reacted by making a round on its golf 
carts, yet a crime still could not be 

While this is not an accusation 
against security's capabilities, it may 
suggest a need for additional officers. 
Student Life has said the increase of 
crime on campus is a reflection of 
society. Knowing this, we should 
equip our school with a security force 
prepared to handle today's increasingly 
violent crimes, both in the city and on 

Compared to other schools of 
similar size, HPU has an extremely 
low rate of campus crime, especially 
considering the socio-economic state 

of the surrounding area. We can credit 
our current security officers with these 
numbers. It would seem obvious that if 
problems are starting to arise in a 
previously strong system that some- 
thing needs to change. 

The school has granted emergency 
funds to campus safety in an effort to 
hire more officers and improve 
security technology. So now, instead of 
shifting the blame, we should concern 
ourselves with the extent of this 
funding and how much it will improve 
our system. 

Will it be just enough money to 
react to this year's incidents? Or will it 
be enough to prevent crime on campus 
for next year? And how many more 
crimes will occur before we find the 

Resident assistants reported supicious 
man in parking lot minutes before attack 

CAR THEFT, continued front page ============^^^== 

A Lambda Chi brother called secu- 
rity and High Point police. Campus of- 
ficer Thomas Motsinger arrived imme- 
diately and was informed about the in- 
cident. High Point police appeared at the 
scene 20 minutes later, according to 

Later that night, Horay 's car, a 1987 
Oldsmobile Cutlass, was found driven 
through the rear of the Whetstone Army 
Navy Store on South Main Street. Police 
arrested twin brothers in connection with 
the break-in and are investigating their 
link to the stolen car. An assault rifle and 
a.223-caliberrifle were confiscated from 
the suspects. 

Before the car theft, two resident as- 
sistants saw the suspect. "I called secu- 
rity and told them that a suspicious man 
was in the parking lot heading toward the 
fraternity houses," said resident assis- 
tant Ted Sikes. 

Security arrived within minutes of 
the call. "A security officer came up and 
drove the car around the parking lot. He 
stopped at the dumpster for about two 
seconds and continued the search around 
the lot before heading to the Delta Sigma 
Phi house," said Erin Bell, a Millis resi- 
dent assistant. 

Ed Cannady, director of public safety, 
believes the man saw security coming 
and sat on the steps behind the dumpster 
where insufficient lighting obscured him 
from the search. He then went to the 
fraternity house parking lot where the 

incident took place. 

"I was scared as hell when I saw the 
gun at my head. I didn't know what to 
do," said Horay. "This wasn't my fault. 
This wasn't the university's fault, but I 
just don't feel safe on campus." 

Due to the theft and earlier incidents, 
students are concerned with their safety. 
Security, Student Life and some campus 
organizations have taken action to pre- 
vent such crimes from happening again. 
A light was installed above the parking 
lot between the houses, and Cannady 
hired off-duty police officers for that 
week and possibly the rest of the semes- 

Area coordinators and resident assis- 
tants have held hall meetings to inform 
students of precautions for avoiding fu- 
ture problems. "Basically, we told the 
students to cover their butts," said Assis- 
tant Area Coordinator Keith Corbett. 
"Students should close windows at night 
and make sure screens and doors are 
locked. When leaving the dorms, check 
to see that the door locks. Don't take any 

"I know security can' t be everywhere, 
but the lights I have been asking for since 
September may have prevented this," 
said Horay, treasurer of Lambda Chi 

Cannady expressed his concern and 
said, "The city is backlogged with so 
many orders that it sometimes takes three 
to four weeks to get something installed." 

University allows for additional 
security officer, new bike patrol 

By John Kinney 

Staff Writer 

The administration has told Ed 
Cannady, director of public safety, that 
he can hire a new security officer and 
begin the student bike patrol program. 

The decision was spurred by the 
March 30 robbery of Jason Horay as well 
as earlier crimes, according to Mr. Bob 
Hayes, vice president of financial affairs. 

Cannady said, "Usually, I could not 
have spent money before the budget date 
(June 1 ), but the university has said I can 

Cannady has already ordered two 
$700 bikes for the student patrol. He has 
also placed an ad in the Greensboro 
News & Record's help-wanted section 

and is accepting applications for new 
security officers. The university will hire 
one more officer so there will be at least 
two officers on duty during second and 
third shifts. 

Though administrators regret what 
happened to Horay, they believe High 
Point University is safe. 

President Jacob C. Martinson said, 
"This campus is proportionately one of 
the safest areas in the Triad and one of 
the very safest areas anywhere. We have 
had one gunpoint robbery in 74 years. 
This to me is an amazing record." 

"We can never guarantee complete 
safety for the students, staff and faculty," 
Hayes said. "You never know when 
something like that [the robbery of Ja- 
son Horay] will happen."

Army-Navy store demolition. 

A thief backed Jay Horay's car through the wall of this Army-Navy store 
on South Main Street in order to steal weapons. 

Cannady has realized the urgency of 
the situation and rushed the installation 
of the lights. He also said that mainte- 
nance will place motion-detector lights 
at the other fraternity houses. Another 
light was added to the steps behind the 
dumpster where the suspect hid. 

In the fall, two bicycle patrols may 
operate on campus from 5 to 1 1 p.m. five 
nights a week. Cannady intends to have 
students fill the bike patroller positions. 
They will be armed with pepper spray. 
Weekend security will remain the same 
with two security officers on duty with 
High Point police assistance. 

Until these measures are imple- 
mented, many students will remain un- 
easy about their safety. 

"The school is more or less based 
upon reactive situations," Horay said. 

"Something happens and they react. 
Something happens, and then they put 
lights up." 

Following the theft, these practices 
will become more proactive. 

"Security has to deal with more prob- 
lems, such as maintenance, which makes 
it hard for them to focus mainly on 
safety," said Sikes. 

Security will do everything possible 
to protect the students. "I'll do whatever 
it takes to make our campus safe," said 

"I think the school is taking steps in 
the right direction. It's about time," said 

Horay took a less optimistic stance. 
"It happened, but it shouldn't have. It 
could have been avoided, had these steps 
been taken to begin with," he said.

Melia brings New York's techno sound to WWIH 

DJ Jester hits the airwaves every Tuesday night 

By Ian Baumeisttr 
Staff Write/ 

Jason Mclia, a 20-ycar-old 
junior, hopes to make a differ- 
ence as a DJ in a relatively new 
category ol music As Jay hops 
in and out ol the DJ's chair at 
90.3 WWIH - the school's ra- 
dio station he says he's happy 
with his tunc slot of Tuesday 
n i el t From 9 to II. 

ile are still chilling 
miw," Jay says. " It's 
earl) in uie week, so people are 
in their rooms." 

Jay enjoys the control that 
conies with producing a "spe- 
cialty show" and picking his 
own music. When Melia (a k a 
DJ Jester) first came to the ra- 
dio station, he found the other 
DJs unacquainted with techno, 
his favorite type of music. 

"They were throwing out 
good material, "says Jay, who 
hegan playing his own CDs. 
Ahout 95 percent of Jay's 
playlist comes from his own 
collection, which means plenty 
of Jay-approved electronic- 

Between segments on his 

show, Jay expounds on the dif- 
ferences hetween techno and 
dance music, his favorite DJ 
(Frankie Bones) and advertising 
lor lahels like Caffeine Records. 
Advertising for Caffeine is en- 
ahling Jay to make contacts lor 
his future, and he also hopes to 
use advertising on campus to 
improve the station's 

Jay believes the lack of lis- 
teners is one of the greatest 
problems with the station. "It 
sucks that no one listens to the 
radio," Jay offers, "but people 
don't know about it." Jay is do- 
ing his part to change that with 
his techno and rave-inspired ra- 
dio show. 

Jay's interest in techno may 
stem from time spent living in 
the New York area. Although 
this music comes under differ- 
ent names, such as jungle and 
industrial, Jay confesses that the 
different styles of dance music- 
arc hard to label. Jay likes to 
mix up his playlist every once 
in a while, and he's open- 
minded about what he's willing 
to play, "If it's a cool song, I'll 
play it." 


DJ Jester. 

When Jason Melia, a k a DJ Jester, found the campus radio station unfamiliar with 
techno, he began broadcasting his personal collection to students on WWIH. 

Jay's interest in raves has 
grown since he began attending 
them during his freshman year. 
He goes to only one a month 
here, but in New York he may 
go to as many as one to two time 
a week. "On Friday, I went to 
Babylon's," Jay tells his listen- 
ers, "...not a good scene." 

Jay's first goal is to become 
the station manager - a job he 
is training for. Learning how to 
set up the station's schedules 
and training people to use the 
equipment will be his top pri- 

Jay would love to be a full- 
time DJ who can make $200- 

$1000 for three to four raves a 
night, but career goals for Jay 
also begin with an interning job 
at the NBC studios in New York 
this summer. He hopes his fu- 
ture will include "possibly pro- 
ducing commercials, but defi- 
nitely something in the produc- 
tion area." 




Useless Internet Sites 


By Ian Baumeister 

Staff Writer 

The information superhighway is up 
and running, and man, there are some 
crazy drivers out there! The Internet has 
created a "Lord of the Flies" mentality 
in which adolescent boys lie at the ready 
to give their views on any topic. 

The notion that no one would care 
about their problems with a neighbor- 
hood electronics store doesn't cross their 
minds. There is quite a bit of power in 
those small hands, making it scary for 
casual surfers on the Net. 

A listing for the weirdest and funni- 
est web sites can be found with the help 
of Yahoo's search engine, an ingenious 
method for wasting time on the Internet. 
Walter Miller's Home Page (http:// is one 
of the most absurdly humorous pages 
available on the Internet. Stop to read 
how Walter is forced by his obscene 
grandfather to download pornographic 
pictures, feed his dogs a strict vegetable- 
only diet (to make them lean & mean), 
and treat his grandfather's boils. You will 
then know the definition of absurd 
Internet humor.

Students ready for a break after 
long hours of Furniture Market 

Skipping class to earn a few bucks is a common routine 

By Heidi Coryell 

Contributing Editor 

The annual spring Furniture Mar- 
ket ends tomorrow, and many students 
will be able to return to their regular 
routines after 10 days of scheduling 
around Market jobs. 

The High Point Market has em- 
ployed HPU students on a regular ba- 
sis for a long time, according to Dr. 
Richard Bennington, professor of home 

Those students who keep jobs 
throughout the school year say Market 
affects them. Joanna Jensen, a sopho- 
more exercise science major, waitresses 
at Applebee's restaurant on Main 
Street. She generally works around 1 5 
hours a week, but she says during 
Market she gets less hours. She makes 
three times more in tips on a Market 
night compared to a regular night. 

Jensen says, "Regular High Point 
customers will tip about 10 percent 
normally, but Market people tip low at 
20 percent." 

On a Market week night, 
Applebee ' s has a steady flow of people 
waiting to be seated for about four 
hours, compared to a regular week 
night when there is no wait. Jensen 
likes the increase in volume during 
Market week. 

She says, "(Marketl people are go- 
ing out to eat, have fun and spend 
money, so they come into the restau- 
rant with a good attitude." 

The difference in clientele improves 
the atmosphere of the restaurant, ac- 
cording to Jensen, which makes it more 
fun for her to work. Jensen uses the 
money she makes for college expenses. 

Aside from students' regular jobs, 
many are temporarily employed by 

Market vendors. Some students pass 
out magazines in front of the Interna- 
tional Home Furnishings building, 
while others unload delivery trucks of 
furniture in the showrooms. Other stu- 
dents work for food service compa- 
nies, such as catering services, work- 
ing showroom parties and other pri vate 
events hosted by furniture manufactur- 

Junior Andrea Waterman has been 
a valet for the past two Markets (fall 
and spring). She parks cars for Van- 
guard furniture with eight other people. 
There are always five people parking 
cars at any given time, but she says 
they are able to work around everyone ' s 
class schedule conflicts. The money 
she is making this Market is going to 
pay off her credit card. 

She believes the job is a good expe- 
rience. "I get to meet a lot of interesting 
people from all over the U.S. and some 
international buyers. And I get to drive 
nice cars," she adds. 

Bennington realizes that many stu- 
dents cut class to work Market if their 
jobs cannot accommodate their sched- 
ules. He says he doesn't mind if a 
student misses class due to Market, as 
long as it is a learning experience. 

"It does affect some people's grades 
because they get too involved," he says. 
When people stay up all night working 
long hours, it can harm their grades. 

Although not all teachers feel that 
Market is a sufficient excuse for skip- 
ping, according to working students, if 
it is possible to work around personal 
schedules, the quick money seems to 
be worth it. 

Teachers, on the other hand, em- 
phasize the importance of keeping up 
with missed work when students skip 
class during Market week.

Summer chillin 1 is a 
definite must for some 

Burnt-out college kids need 
a break from the books 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

When the 
school year ends, 
sonic of us arc- 
excited to get the 
hell out and never 
return. Others, 
like myself, await 
summer's crazy 

My first sum 
mer in High Point occurred when my 
father convinced me to attend the 
Summer Advantage program. The fol- 
lowing summer down here led me to 
make this a yearly routine. 

We students, for the most part, 
want to make a substantial amount of 
money during the summer. Going 
home is sometimes seen as the best 
option — and probably a little bit 
cheaper because we no longer have 
to dodge rent, power and cable bills. 

We all know what it's like going 
home for that first week — mom and 
dad treat us like kings and queens. We 
eat, sleep, sleep and eat. 

After a while, questions start to 
arise. "Why don't you go look for a 
job?" and "Don't you want to cut the 

When these inquisitions become 
the dinner topic, you could only wish 
you'd been spending your summer in 
High Point. 

Think about it. You can get a great- 
paying job, get ahead or, in some 
cases, retake courses. 

Rumor has it that summer courses 
have advantages. Senior Joe Wallace, 
who lives in Maryland, has spent ev- 

ery summer here since his freshman 
year. "Summer credits are an easy alter- 
native to the grinding curriculum of the 
regular school year, said Wallace. 

Wallace, who plans to graduate in 
December, will not deny his energetic 
party-going . . 
"Summer parties 
.ire awesome 
When July comes 
around and the 
newcomers arrive 
here, we rip it up." 
said Wallace. 

Wallace is 
right. Student.-, dur- 
ing the summer can get hours out of the 
way, hold a lucrative job and still "rip it 
up." It's a heck of a time. 

Though most students settle for off- 
campus housing, campus unity is vivid 
during the summer. With a less difficult 
schedule at hand, students can meet ev- 
ery night and enjoy themselves. 

Senior Paul Driscoll, a Floridian, has 
also spent most of his summers in High 
Point. According to Driscoll, the sum- 
mer months he has stayed here have 
been among the highlights of his col- 
lege life. "It's awesome. Hostilities aren't 
upheld, people forgive and forget, and 
great friendships are made," said 

Taking advantage of summer 
courses has also been a positive for 
Driscoll. "I've taken enough summer 
courses, which have let me have easy- 
going semesters," said Driscoll. 

For all you party-poopers planning 
to go home this summer — don't. Come 
and take some classes, get a part-time 
job and party. 

I and the rest of the party-goers at 
this school will be here working, taking 
classes and havin' fun in the sun. See 
you in the summer.

The Sixth Man mixes laughter and 
tears for a surprisingly good movie 

By Sue Gessncr 

Staff Writer 

When first tackling my assignment 
for this final issue of the Campus 
Chronicle, I started writing a review for 
The Saint. After all, it was a refreshingly 
original movie with a lot of heart and 
wit and only one minor flaw, a brief 
moment of senseless violence. 

But I left my keyboard for SAB's 
Movie Night which I work with Jamie 
Hcnton every week and grudgingly sat 
down for The Sixth Man, even though I 
was more in the mood for a thriller like 
the newly opened Anaconda. 

The only reason I agreed to sec The 
Sixth Man was because I knew it had 
something to do with basketball, one of 
my all-time favorite sports. I figured it 
would be stupid and mildly funny at best, 
but shrugged it off since I wasn't paying 
full price. The conclusion I quickly came 
to, however, was that this might very 
well be the most underestimated film of 
the year. 

Since I wasn't planning on review- 
ing it, I didn't take notes. I don't even 
remember the names of the actors; one 
of them is a Wayans brother, and the 
other one played "Dwayne" on the 
Cosby spin-off, A Different World. I'm 
not sure who directed or produced it, but 
they definitely deserve some kind of 

This advertised "comedy" is about 


two brothers who grow up playing bas- 
ketball together, the older one being the 
"star." They work as a dynamite team 
from grade school through college. 
When tragedy strikes, they both must 
learn how to cope and move on without 
letting it break the special bond that they 

Surprisingly, I found myself inter- 
mittently laughing hysterically and 
bawling my eyes out. You wouldn't 
think comedy and tragedy could work 
so believably together, but these actors 
did a phenomenal job making me feel 
their pain as well as revel in their tri- 
umph. The transitions between oppos- 
ing emotions are smooth and natural, 
even if the story is a little far-fetched. 

For the icing on the cake, cameo ap- 
pearances by real NCAA coaches, 
teams, and announcers — like Dick 
Vitale giving some of his best exagger- 
ated monologues. My opinion? "It's 
Awesome, Baby!" It's all heart and then 
some, with a few laughs and computer- 
ized special effects on the side. Don't 
wait for the video. Run out and see it 
now before it leaves the theater. 

As an aside, I'd like to apologize for 
this, my last review in the Campus 
Chronicle, being a tad on the unortho- 
dox side. As a senior, I've taken a little 
creative license, and I appreciate you 
letting me do so. For those of you who 
may have read my reviews faithfully, 
thanks. It's been a pleasure. 


Rodman's eventful life and antics 
chronicled in Bad as I Wanna Be 

Flirtation with suicide defined The Worm's identity 

By Reagan Chapman 

Staff Writer 

Dennis Rodman, NBA Bad 
Boy and extraordinary 
rebounder, serves up a breezy, 
R-rated, can't-put-it-down au- 
tobiography. The book, Bad As 
I Wanna Be, covers his life 
from his early years in Dallas 
public housing projects to his 
job as an airport janitor at age 
20. It continues with his tri- 
umphs on the world's most 
elite basketball stage and at its 
core offers a measure of deter- 
mination and inspiration that 
makes for somewhat conta- 
gious reading. 

Citing his well-publicized 
flirtation with suicide in 1993 as the 
defining moment in his life, Rodman 
paints himself after a period of iden- 
tity crisis as a man who is at peace with 
himself, free to say and do what he 
pleases. From the color of his hair to 
taking off his socks on the sideline, he 
explains his theory on life and his rea- 
soning behind it. He dishes it out with 
the best of them, and he even devotes 

an entire chapter to his six-month af- 
fair with Madonna. 

By the end of this readable but dis- 
turbing book, Rodman displays the 
hassles of celebrity life that accom- 
pany fame. He proves that the pres- 
sures of being famous can get to the 
best of us. For a man earning $2.5 
million a year to play a game he loves, 
you would think he led the perfect life. 




Elementary school children 
and HPU students participated in 
the 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt the 
morning of March 18 near the 
Campus Center. Organizer Kristy 
Morrison teamed with campus 
clubs and community groups to

exciting day of hunting. 

"It was awesome," Morrison 
said. "I don't know who had more 
fun - the kids from High Point or 
the kids who came from Parkview 
and Northwood. It was absolutely 

After the egg-hunt, Deep Wa- 
ter band members Seth Carter and 
Brent Ward treated the kids to their 
rendition of children's songs. Be- 
fore they returned to school, the 
guests filled up on punch and cake. 

In case you're wondering, that's 
Mike Goldspiel doing the honors 
as the Easter bunny.

Campus Chronicle 9 


Love, Lucy shares the colorful life of Lucille Ball 

America's favorite redhead draws readers 
into her world without glossing it over 

By Brian Ersalesi 

Staff Writer 

She signed it like a love letter, and 
that is exactly what it is. A thank-you 
note to all of us who have laughed along 
with, hut never at, America's comedi- 
enne, Lucille Ball. 

In this recently published autobiog- 
raphy, Lucy shares her life from pin-up 
girl to starlet and from television star to 
the United States' first female president 
of a major television studio. 

And she does not sugar-coat it. 

In the prologue, Lucie Arnaz, Lucy's 
daughter with husband and longtime co- 
star, Desi Arnaz, says, "There's a won- 
derful energy that comes through (in the 
book)... a fire in her belly, as a young 
kid, a sense of adventure. Like, 'I wanna 
make some noise.'" 

And make some noise she did. Love, 
Lucy was written over several years be- 
ginning in 1960. It spans her life from 
childhood until 1 964, when she divorced 
Desi Arnaz and married Gary Morton, 
with whom she stayed until her April 26, 

1989 death. 

This book is a won- 
derful chronicle of 
Lucy's life. What makes 
it so much more interest- 
ing than the normal star 
biographies, which dot 
the checkout lines at gro- 
cery stores, is that it is 
written by her. Instead of 
just informing the reader 
about a situation in her 
life, Lucy tells us, in her 
own fireball way, exactly 
what she thought about 

An anecdote from 
Love, Lucy that is memorable occurs 
when America's favorite comedienne 
made the front pages of every newspa- 
per in the country. Sadly, it was not for 
any of her movies or television skills. 
The Sept. 6, 1953 Los Angeles Herald 
Express blared the headline, "Lucille 
Ball named red." 

An investigative reporter had dug 
into Ball's past and found that in 1936, 

her first time at the polls, she had voted 
Communist in the presidential election. 
This did not bode well in the era of 
McCarthyism. Ball was forced to testify 
before the ethics committees of the 
United States Senate. However, even 
more trying than that testimony was the 
constant barrage from the press. 

But through it all, she remained the 
Lucy that we all know and love. In fact, 

"Lucy did keep us 
laughing on the small 
screen, but her life had 
its share of turmoil. " 

after trying to keep mum to a group of 
reporters who hurled questions at her, 
she finally broke down and said, "I'm 
not a Communist. Sure I'm red, but that's 
only up here (she pointed to her trade- 
mark fire-engine red hair), and that's not 
even legitimate." Once again, she man- 
aged to smile through her tears. 

Lucy did keep us laughing on the 
small screen, but her life had its share 
of turmoil. In this book, she handles it 
wonderfully. She does not pretend that 
it didn't happen and she does not gloss 
over it with excuses. Instead she squares 
off with the truth. At times this book 
reads like she is laughing in the face of 
life. It is almost as if she is saying, "Ha, 
ha, I beat you. Yes, you gave me hell, 
but I kept plugging along and stayed 
happy until the end." 

She did. And, in the process she 
made millions of others smile along with 
her — then, now and forever. 


Touring bands will surprise and delight 

Give these unheard-of bands a chance - you 
just might discover another Grateful Dead 

By Jason Morgan 

Staff Writer 

For over 20 years the Grateful Dead 
established themselves as one of the 
best bands around. Despite only one top 
10 single during its existence, the Dead 
managed to consistently be one of the 
top money-making bands. The Dead 
found success not in record sales but in 
constant touring, which inevitably led 
to the counter-culture lifestyle of the 
band's followers, the Deadheads. 

Now that Jerry Garcia is gone and 
the Dead with him, a number of bands 
have picked up where the Dead left off. 
These bands have found success in tour- 
ing and establishing a fan base instead 
of relying on their marketability to ra- 
dio stations. There are a number of 
bands that have already established 
themselves on the road and a number 
that are in the process. Now that we are 
on the heels of the summer concert sea- 
son, these bands will be starting their 
summer tours and here is a guide to 
where some of the established bands 
like Phish will be playing and a couple 
of others to check out. 

Phish, which is probably the most 
notable of the group with its recent 
surge in popularity, will start its sum- 
mer in Europe and return to the states 
in July and August. Phish will play se- 
lected dates around the U.S. starting in 
Virginia Beach, Va. and Raleigh's Wal- 
nut Creek Amphitheater. Then the band 
will make its way west where the high- 
light appears to be the show at The 
Gorge in George, Wash. It comes back 
east to finish the tour the same way it 
did last year, a three-day festival, called 
The Great Wendt, which will be held 

in Limestone, Me. on the Canada/U.S. 
border in mid- August. 

A number of other bands that have 
already made a name for themselves also 
will be heading out this summer. Wide- 
spread Panic, an original H.O.R.D.E. 
band with Phish, is a definite good show 
and shouldn't be missed if it comes to 
your town. Bela Fleck and the 
Flecktones, who bring a different sound 
to the stage, will be opening for Dave 
Matthews in Charlotte in mid-June. 

If energy from a show is what you 
seek, then Leftover Salmon, a funky- 
bluegrass band from Colorado, is excel- 
lent entertainment and will not disap- 

point. Everything, a big High Point fa- 
vorite a few years ago, is always improv- 
ing on its funky jazz style. Everything, 
from Washington D.C., has established 
itself all over the country but still plays 
its best when the band returns home to 
the east; so don't miss them. 

A couple of bands that are trying to 
improve their southern fan base are Moe 
and Strangefolk. These two bands from 
Burlington, Vt. have emerged from 
Phish's shadow up north and are trying 
to do so in the south. For those who 
caught their show at Ziggy's last week, 
you already know what kind of jams 
these two bands are capable of, so if you 
like jam-oriented bands, then buy your 
ticket when these two come to town. 

For you folks heading back to Jersey 
and other northern points for the sum- 

mer, a couple of local bands to check 
out while you're home are Forget Betty 
and Vitamin C. They are worth the $5 
cover at your favorite local bar. If you 
stay in High Point for the summer, then 
don't miss Purple School Bus and 
Folkswaggin when they make their ap- 
pearances in town. 

Of course, this is just a brief guide 
to some good bands to see over the sum- 
mer. There a literally hundreds of bands 
on tour out there, and they are all in it 
for the same reason: to share their style 
of music with others and maybe make a 
little money doing it. So this summer 
when your buddy asks you to go down 
to the local bar and check out a band, 
pay the $5 cover and check it out be- 
cause you might just like it. 


Moe rocks Zi 
no other and 

ggy's with a sound like 
a style that is all its own 

One listen and you'll be ready to say "I do" to this personable band 

By Heather Sitter 

Staff Writer 

I must begin by saying I had every 
intention of getting to Ziggy's last 
Wednesday by 10 so I could see both 
Strange Folk and Moe perform. But 
fate and a few tardy friends prohibited 
that from happening. So, I missed 
Strange Folk but managed to catch all 
but the first 10 minutes of Moe. I think 
fate has a mysterious way of working. 

Based on my belief in fate, I think 
I can accurately assume that Strange 
Folk and I wouldn't have made a happy 
couple. Moe, however, had me down 

on one knee and proposing. 

The lead singer looked like a ZZ Top 
descendant, and as if that weren't cool 
enough, he had an awesome sense of 
humor. His betwecn-song patter varied 
from "Our new CD is available in drug 
stores everywhere" to "This next song 
may help some of you cope with that not 
so fresh feeling." The ring please... 

With the debut of its new CD No Day, 
Moe is a name that you will no doubt be 
hearing again. It has a style all its own, 
characterized by heavy bass and an in- 
cessant need to jam. These guys are not 
only entertaining but also amazingly ver- 
satile. They can accelerate from mellow 

to maniac in six seconds fiat. Their 
eclectic sound ranges from rock to 
roots to the tiniest taste of country 

When asked how he felt about the 
band, fellow freshman and Moe en- 
thusiast, Darren Ball, said, "You can 
feel Moe's groove from your head to 
your toes." You may kiss the bride... 

Moe has personality, both strong 
and effervescent. With its roots planted 
strongly in the ground thanks to an ear- 
lier CD, Heailseed , and songs like "St. 

Augustine, rime Again" and 

"Buster," these guys are going places, 
like our honeymoon... 

Love, Lucy shares the colorful life of Lucille Ball 

Touring bands will surprise and delight

Spend some quality time 
in the theatre this summer 

More action thrillers and 
animated Disney films 
find their way to the big 
screen in a few months 

By Megan Morgan 

A&E Editor 

The summer is quickly approach- 
ing and with it the promise of many 
dull weeks of living at home and work- 
ing to make enough money to survive 
the next semester at school. To help 
alleviate the boredom, Hollywood 
once again dishes up its usual sum- 
mer fare. 

Hollywood sets off the summer 
with its typical multimillion-dollar, 
action-packed repertoire of big-name 
(licks. The two biggest offerings to be 
released are Lost World, the sequel to 
I993'l mega money-maker, Jurassic 
Park, and Batman and Rohin, the 
fourth in the Batman scries. 

Lost World takes up where Juras- 
sic Park left off. It follows the possi- 
bility that the dinosaurs made it to the 
mainland and the problems that arise. 
Jeff Goldblum returns as the pessimis- 
tic mathematician who must once 
again save the day. Based on the 
bestseller by Michael Crichton, the 
picture adds a few new beasties, some 
of which were in the book Jurassic 
Park. Directed by Steven Spielberg, 
Lost World is almost a shoe-in for the 
top-grossing film of the summer. 

Batman and Robin brings back 
the dynamic duo for another round of 

crime fighting. This time George 
Clooney fills the codpiece for the Dark 
Knight Detective (it had to be en- 
larged), and Chris O'Donnell returns 
as his ever-popular sidekick. Keeping 
with the trend of two villains, Uma 
Thurman and Arnold Schwarzenegger 
play baddies Poison Ivy and Mr. 
Freeze, the perfect problem-makers 
for the good guys. If Lost World 
doesn't rake it in, this flick certainly 

Disney adds its latest, Hercules, 
to the summer line-up. Drawn by the 
artists of Aladdin, this piece of anima- 
tion eye candy breaks from the seri- 
ousness of the past two years. With 
voice-overs by screen veterans James 
Woods and Danny DeVito, Disney cre- 
ates a big draw for both parents and 
children alike. 

Rounding out the foursome of big 
budget hopefuls is Volcano, an exten- 
sion of the present trend of natural di- 
saster flicks. Carried by Tommy Lee 
Jones, this film will probably bury its 
predecessor, Dante's Peak. Last 
summer's Twister paved the way for 
this and ensuing man-against- nature 
movies that will barrage theatres in the 

These are just a few of the delica- 
cies Hollywood is offering to the 
masses, but don't forget the indies and 
sleepers also gracing the big screen. 
When the heat and the lack of anything 
to do sets in this summer, catch a flick 
at the local multiplex. It will give you 
something to do and, remember, the- 
atres are air-conditioned. 

B.A.P.S. unexpectedly elicits 
knee-slapping chuckles 

By Doniese N. Collins 

Staff Writer 

In B.A.P.S, as Nisi (Halle Berry) and 
Mickey (Natalie Desselle) half- 
heartedly sling hash in a local greasy- 
spoon in Decatur, Ga., they fantasize 
about a better life. Stuck in jobs that 
are no good and with boyfriends that 
are equally no good, Nisi and Mickey 
dream of getting out and making it big. 
But first, they have to come up with the 
right plan. 

Finally, their big opportunity ar- 
rives. Nisi learns about an open cast- 
ing call in L.A. for a Heavy D video 
(and I do mean literally heavy). Nisi 
feels that she will dazzle the judges with 
her unique dance moves and inevita- 
bly get the $10,000 top prize. After 
some inspirational, friendly arm-twist- 
ing, Nisi persuades Mickey to take their 
life savings and fly to L.A. for the au- 

Their outrageous hairdos and flair 
for fashion (gold teeth and bright, skin- 
tight clothing) attract negative attention 
from everyone they meet. What they 
thought was a big opportunity definitely 
changed once they were thrown out of 
the audition with no chance for a call 
back. Nisi and Mickey were once again 

nobodies, and they contemplated their 
return to Decatur. 

But, as luck would have it. Nisi and 
Mickey are approached by a chauffeur 
(Luigi Amoreo), who claims he's look- 
ing for someone to star in another mu- 
sic video. He tells Nisi she's perfect for 
the part and he will pay her $10,000. A 
limousine ride later, the Black Ameri- 
can Princesses arrive at a gorgeous 
Beverly Hills mansion complete with 
servants, a huge ballroom, beautiful fur- 
niture and Picasso paintings. The girls 
are ecstatic until they meet Isaac 
(Jonathan Fried) who is the owner of the 
mansion's nephew. He tries to convince 
the girls to join him in a scheme to take 
his uncle for all he has. In a hilarious 
twist of events, the girls come to the 
uncle's aid but not before they turn ev- 
erything and everybody upside down in 
Beverly Hills. 

I didn't think that this movie was 
going to be good. But I was wrong. I 
was cracking up from the beginning until 
the end. This is Halle as you've never 
seen her before. Newcomer Natalie 
Desselle isn't too bad herself. All I'm 
saying is, if you're down and not feel- 
ing quite the thing, then this is the movie 
you should see. It will perk you right 
up. I know it did the trick for me. 

Ben Folds Five brings 
superb R.E.M. to mind 

Check out the band's newest intellectually 
stimulating album, Whatever and Ever Amen 

By Ian BaumeLster 

Staff Writer 

Ben Folds Five's catchy single, 
"Battle of Who Could Care Less," is the 
tenth track on Whatever and Ever 
Amen, but the album is chock-full of 
well-written pop songs that don't insult 
the listener's intelligence like the fe- 
male version of New Kids on the Block, 
the Spice Girls. While the assembly line 
commercialism of the Spice Girls may 
appeal to many, the skill of Ben Folds 
Five makes it perfectly clear that these 
pop fiends from Chapel Hill are play- 
ing on a completely different level. 

R.E.M. 's lush Automatic for the 
People springs to mind when listening 
to the Ben Folds Five. However, their 
influences reach back much farther than 
recent pop. Echoes of the Beach Boys 
and the 1960s pop sound permeate 
Whatever and Ever Amen although they 
are far from copycats. Ben Folds Five 
is not content to be a sweet, demure pop 

band; in fact, the album demonstrates 
that attitude often reserved for rock acts 
lies somewhere else as well. In "One 
Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces," 
Ben Folds Five radiates with punkish 
look-at-me-now lines such as, "If you 
really want to see me/Check your papers 
and the TV/Look who's tellin' who what 
to do." 

Ben Folds Five's refreshing honesty 
and inventiveness carry Whatever and 
Ever Amen. The piano and string ar- 
rangements give a cozy warmth to the 
trio's music-a pop treasure.

Field event specialist Chad 
Baucom practices the shot put. 

Panther cindermen 
enter home stretch, 
prep for season's 
final challenge 

By Todd "Red" Messner 

Staff Writer 

The track team has proven in sev- 
eral non-scoring meets this season, 
including ones at Duke, Lynchburg 
and Wilmington. These are meets 
that several teams run in, and points 
arc not kept. 

The Panthers did run in two point- 
scoring meets, one at Pembroke and 
one at Francis Marion. At Pembroke, 
they finished second in a field of 
seven. "We performed very well at 
Pembroke," said coach Bob 
Davidson, "This meet got us off to a 
good start early in the season." 

In the second meet at Francis 
Marion, the team finished fourth out 
of nine teams. In this meet, the team's 
only woman athlete, Heather Bow- 
ers, single-handedly beat two of the 
opposing women's teams. Bowers' 
strongest events are the 1500 and 
3000 meters. 

The final meet of the season, The 
Carolinas Invitational Track and 
Field Championship is Saturday and 
pits many colleges from North and 
South Carolina. High Point looks to 
gain its second championship in the 
fifth annual meet. The Panthers won 
the first competition. 

Dave Duggan and Sean Hildreth 
are the team's strong distance run- 
ners. Duggan is a favorite in the 
10,000 and should produce a strong 
threat in the 5000. Hildreth, who is a 
favorite in the 1500, will also com- 
pete for tops in the 5000. Mark 
Klamerus looks to place in the 5000. 
In the 3000-meter steeple chase, 
Christian Kell is expecting to finish 
in the top three. Kenji Dorsey will 
be running the 800 meters and has a 
strong shot at placing. 

In the sprints, Jobe Beckhom is 
favored in the 400. Larikus Scott has 
a good shot at placing in the 1 00 and 
200. The team is short-handed in the 
field events, but Chad Baucom has a 
chance to score points for the team 
in all four events. He's strong in the 
hammer, shot put and javelin and is 
a favorite in the discus. Relay teams 
will be made up of Dorsey, Scott, 
Matt Norman and Beckhom. 

"Methodist will be the favorite at 
the championship, but look for us to 
be right there with them," Davidson 


Moore and Wilson drive golf team 
to NCAA II Regional tournament 

Panthers' championship caliber status should 
continue next year despite losing seniors 

By Tracy Snelbaker 

Staff Writer 

The men's golf team was 
able to mix together experi- 
ence, youth and depth to form 
a competitive and well-bal- 
anced attack. That attack has 
been good enough for a No. 1 8 
national ranking in Division II, 
and it has secured the squad a 
berth in the NCAA Division II 
South Regional, May 4-7. 

The men were led most of 
season by freshman Tommy 
Moore who shot an average of 
72 strokes per match, heading 
into the season-ending CVAC 
tournament. His only slip 
came in the Cheerwine Invita- 
tional Tournament when he 
was disqualified for an illegal 
drop. He could often be found 
at the top of the leader board every tour- 

Senior Donnie Wilson, coming off a 
very serious knee injury, averaged 73. 
He led team the Panthers to the team 
championship at the Max Ward Invita-

tional in March and he took the indi- 
vidual championship as well. He fol- 
lowed that up with a second-place per- 
formance in the Cheerwine Invitational. 
Junior Pete Santacasa averaged a 76, 

while sophomore Adam Pranger and se- 
nior Toni Romani averaged 77's. 

The golf team will compete in the 
South Regional tournament at 
Stoney Creek in Burlington. 
The Panthers earned the honor 
at the CVAC tournament on 
Monday and Tuesday. They 
finished in a second place tie 
with Pfeiffer and then de- 
feated Pfeiffer in a playoff. 

Moore continued his great 
play by leading the individual 
scoring after the first day and 
finishing fourth overall with 
222 strokes. Wilson finished 
in the top 10 at 225 to join 
Moore on the all-conference 

Scoring for the other Pan- 
thers who will make up the 
team come May 4-7: 
Santacasa 229, Romani 235 
and Adam Pranger 238. 

While this year has yet to 
end for the men, next year 
looks just as bright. They will 
lose five golfers, but it doesn't 
look like they will miss a beat. Moore, 
Santacasa and Pranger will return to 
spearhead the team with plenty of will- 
ing and very capable talent coming up 
from the junior varsity team. 

Baseball team: We can only get better' 

Panthers struggle through another losing season, finish in CVAC cellar with 9-31 record 

By Gustavo Vieira 

Greek Editor 

Last weekend the baseball team vis- 
ited Coker College, hoping to improve 
its overall record to 12-28. It lost three 
games and finished the season at 9-31, 
earning a last-place finish in the CVAC. 

The three losses didn't come as a 
shock to many. Several players empha- 
sized the team had talent, but it just 
couldn't win. "This has been one of the 
most talented teams I've ever played for, 
but we just couldn't get wins together," 
said sophomore center fielder Dan Roof. 

"This year we had the worst luck that 
any team could've," said infielder Jim 
Long. Early season-ending injuries didn't 
help the team, either. "When we lost (se- 
nior catcher Brandunn) Rush, that did 
not help us at all," added Long. 

With the team lacking Rush's senior- 
ity, red-shirt freshman Jason Lowder 
took the starting role behind the plate and 
had a solid season. 

Despite a year of embarrassment, 
players remain optimistic. "We're still 
young, and we plan to have some good 
recruits to fill in crucial positions," said- 
Long. During the off-season, the Pan- 
thers hope to recruit junior college 

High hopes for next season are still 
visible among players. According to 
Long, the team's youth and lack of ex- 
perience were a major drawback, "but 
next year we should be a lot more suc- 
cessful," he said. 

Most of this year's solid starters will 
be coming back for another try at a bright 
season. "We can only get better," said

Pohjamo, Parks undefeated in tennis 

By John Idol 

Staff Writer 


The men's tennis team is still ham- 
mering away at the competition head- 
ing into the season-ending champion- 
ship tournament. It is ranked No. 10 
in the East region of Division II 
schools. Coach Jerry Tcrt/agian 
says,"I am pleased with the way we 
are playing." 

The men defeated Catawba, 6-3, 
lost a tough match to Barton, 6-3, lost 
another tight match against Pfciffcr, 
5-4, destroyed Belmont Abbey, 8-1, 
succumbed to Lees McRac, 5-4, an- 
nihilated St. Andrews, 9-0 and 
smashed Erskine, 8-1. They have an 
overall record of 13-3 and 5-3 in the 


Second-seed Pekka Pohjamo of 
Finland has gone undefeated so far 
this season. 

Tcrtzagian knows that the confer- 
ence tournament will be no walk in 
the park. "It will be decided between 
the top four teams. I know we will 
play hard and well in the conference 
tournament," Tcrtzagian says. Win or 
lose, these men will leave their hearts 
on the court. 


The women's tennis team contin- 
ues to have impressive outings this 
spring. Coach Jerry Tertzagian says, 
"The team is ranked No. 10 in the 
East region of Division II schools." 

The women beat Catawba, 5-4, 

lost to Pfeiffer, 7-2, crushed 
Longwood, 8- 1 , steamrolled Erskine, 
8- 1 , walloped Lees McRae, 7-2, bat- 
tered St. Andrews, 8-1 and lost a 
heartbreaker to Barton, 5-4. The team 
has an overall record of 1 3-5 and 5-3 
in the conference. 

Although everyone has performed 
well, two players have enjoyed stel- 
lar years. Top-seeded Andrea Avello 
is ranked No. 4 in the East region. 
Fourth-seeded Dawn Parks has gone 
undefeated so far this season. "Dawn 
and Andrea have played very well," 
Tertzagian says. 

The team will either be seeded 
third or fourth at the conference tour- 
nament in Charlotte April 17-19. 
Tertzagian says, "It will be a wide- 
open tournament." 

Yet to lose. 

Finland's Pekka Pohjamo has a perfect 

record as the No. 2 men's seed. 


Interleague play 
highlights '97 
baseball season 

Colorado and Baltimore will play in 
World Series; Orioles will prevail 

By Todd "Red" Messner 
Staff Writer 

It's spring again, and the 1997 Major League 
Baseball season is underway. There is a lot of 
anticipation for the upcoming season, alter last 
year's exciting finish when the New York Yan- 
kees came back to win the World Scries over the 

This season will be the first with interleague 
play, with teams from the American and National 
Leagues playing against each other. So far the 
Orioles and the Rockies have the best records in 
their respective leagues. 

American League - 

• The Hast should display the best talent. Bal- 
timore, New York, Boston and Toronto all have 
legitimate shots at winning the division and a 
probable wildcard spot. The Orioles have a fierce 
lineup and need a good effort from the pitching 
staff. The Yankees bring enough all-around tal- 
ent and confidence from last season to be in the 
thick of things. The Red Sox and Blue Jays 
strengthened their pitching in the off season to 
put them in contention. 

• The Central division should come down to a 
battle between the Indians and White Sox. Each 
team made big moves before the season started. 
The Indians picked up Dave Justice and Marquis 
Grissom from the Braves, and the White Sox got 
Albert Bell through free agency. 

• In the West, the Oakland A's look like the 
favorite. The power of Jose Canseco, Mark 
McGwire and Geronimo Berroa is the key lor (he 
A's to gel back into the post season. 

National League - 

• In the East, the Marlins anil Braves will be 
on top. Florida spent a lot of money in the winter 
and bought a contender. The Braves will be as 
consistent as ever and should boast one of the 
best records in baseball. 

• Hie Houston Astros will be the strongest 
team in the Central. Cincinnati should pose (he 
biggest threat to the Astros, but in general it's a 
weak di\ ision. 

• The West should be (he most competitive di- 
vision in (he league. Look for Colorado to pull 
away by the end of the season and sail into the 
post season. 

This season should be another one full of good 
pennant races and exciting baseball. I look to see 
the Orioles playing the Rockies in the World Se- 
ries with Baltimore taking it in six.
